WSU student injured in fall from balcony

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — A Washington State University student was injured in a fall from the third-story balcony of an off-campus apartment in Pullman.

Police said 22-year-old Jonathan Meyer had been drinking with a friend Friday night when he tried to drop to a second-story balcony and missed.

The Lewiston Tribune reports he was unconscious when police arrived. He was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital and later transferred to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, where he remains in serious condition, according to WSU’s Daily Evergreen newspaper.

The university says Meyer is a senior from Kirkland.

This is the third alcohol-related fall at WSU and the University of Idaho in the past month. A 19-year-old WSU student was injured in a three-story fall Sept. 14 at a fraternity. A 21-year-old University of Idaho student was injured in a two-story fall Sept. 12 at his fraternity.
