Woman falls three storeys from male residence
"She is lucky to have survived considering the height of the building"
A 20-year-old woman was seriously hurt after she fell three storeys down a building at the University of Pretoria early on Sunday morning, paramedics said.
It was unclear whether she was pushed or jumped from one of the windows at the male residences, said Netcare911 spokesman Jeffrey Wicks.
Paramedics arrived at 4.30am and found the woman lying at the floor below.
“She suffered abrasions as a result. She is lucky to have survived considering the height of the building,” said Wicks.
Circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear.
Wicks said the woman was taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition.
