USC Student Suffers Fall at Fraternity House

DPS says the incident appeared to be "an accident."

UPDATE (9:35 a.m. PDT):

This morning, ATVN spoke with the victim's mother, who reported that her daughter's condition had stabilized and that her daughter would be transferred from the hospital soon, although she would not disclose where.  She anticipates that her daughter will make a full recovery.

------

A female USC student was taken to California Hospital Friday after falling from a second floor landing.

DPS Capt. David Carlisle told ATVN she slipped and fell from the top of the stairs and landed on the ground in between some columns outside the house.

DPS received a call about an injured person around 6:30 p.m. from the Sigma Chi fraternity house on USC's Greek row.

Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics responded to the Sigma Chi fraternity house on USC's Greek row and found the student unconscious but breathing. Carlisle could not confirm her identity but said there did not appear to be a social event at the house at the time of the fall.

Emergency room officials at the hospital would not confirm the identity or status of the victim over the phone.

COMMENTS

Let us all pray for the injured student and her family. Pray for her full recovery and to give her family strength and comfort during this very sad time. May God comfort and heal your family.
With Prayerful thoughts. Sincerely, A very concerned Sigma Chi Parent
