SPOKANE — A Washington State University student remains in critical condition after falling from a second-floor balcony during a party.
The Spokesman-Review reports that police say Nathan Hopkins, of Davenport, Lincoln County, had been standing on a bench near the balcony railing on Friday when he lost his balance. The 18-year-old reportedly had been drinking when he fell 11 feet onto a slab of concrete.
The teen suffered serious head injuries and was taken to a Spokane hospital, where he remained in critical condition Monday.
The incident marked the third time someone has fallen from a College Hill residence this semester.
