MOSCOW, Idaho — A 20-year-old University of Idaho student who fell from a window of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house in August has been released from the hospital.

Shane Meyer was one of two students who fell from a third-floor fraternity house window on the Moscow campus during the first two weeks of the fall semester.

Amanda Andaverde, 19, was listed in satisfactory condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Monday.

The accidents, one in late August and another in early September, prompted the school to begin a review of safety measures at Greek housing on campus.

Moscow Assistant Police Chief David Duke says investigations into both of the falls have been completed and the results sent to the Latah County prosecutor for review.
