EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A high school student was critically injured after accidentally falling from a sixth-floor window while playing a game of catch at a Michigan State University dorm, authorities said Monday.
The 18-year-old from Ann Arbor crashed through the glass and fell from the window at North Case Hall on the East Lansing campus about 3 a.m. Sunday and was taken to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing for treatment, police said.
The student, Alexandra Pew, was in critical condition Monday, hospital spokesman John Foren said. Details about her injuries weren't immediately released.
Peter Fayroian, who heads Greenhills School where Pew is a senior, said faculty and students discussed the accident at an assembly on Monday morning and the school community is supporting Pew. He said her family told him they expect her to make a full recovery.
"My goal is to shake her hand at commencement," Fayroian said.
Campus police said they have found no indication of suspicious activity.
Pew, who was visiting the campus, was playing catch with friends in a dorm lounge when she fell and broke through the glass, Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said Monday.
Michigan State freshman Ustina Shives told WILX-TV that she heard the sound of breaking glass and realized that someone had fallen. She called for help.
"She landed on her back. She was still for a moment and then she started moving," Shives said.
