University of Washington student seriously injured in fall from 3rd story frat house window

A University of Washington student is in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with “serious” injuries after a fall from a 3rd story window.

According to KOMO News.com, the 22-year-old man was under the influence of alcohol when he fell from the Sigma Chi fraternity house at 4505 18th Avenue NE in Seattle.

There were two falls from University of Washington fraternity houses in 2008. In June of 2008, Kevin MacDonald, age 21, died after at fall at the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. In May of 2008, a 20-year-old student was seriously injured after falling from the roof of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house.

Falls can be life threatening and those that survive can suffer from traumatic brain injury and spinal cord damage. We wish this injured young man the best.
