A 22-year-old student fell 11 stories from a residence hall at Washington State University in Pullman and survived, according to a university spokesman.
The student fell from an 11th-story window of a room in Orton Hall about 10 p.m. Wednesday, the website of campus radio station KQQQ reported.
University spokesman Darin Watkins told the Spokane Spokesman-Review that the male junior was flown by helicopter to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.
“It’s almost miraculous he’s alive and we’re really hoping for the best,” Watkins told the newspaper.
The Spokesman-Review said that trees beside the building broke the student’s fall and that he landed in grass. The student was conscious when emergency crews got there, the report said.
Campus police said alcohol was not involved.
