Wed., Nov. 30, 2011, 4:45 p.m.

A young female is hospitalized in critical condition after falling today from the River Park Square parking garage in downtown Spokane.

The Spokane resident fell or possibly jumped several stories, landing on the paved garage entrance ramp below. Police haven’t released her name or age.

She was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Spokane police received the call at 2:52 p.m.

The Major Crimes Unit is investigating due to the extent of her injuries, said Officer Brian Eckersley, but “there is no indication of foul play.”

“It doesn’t appear to be anything criminal at this point,” he said.

Investigators were on the scene this evening interviewing witnesses, processing the scene and working to determine whether the fall was accidental or intentional, he said.

The garage is owned by the Cowles Co., which also owns The Spokesman-Review.
