Woman killed in fall from 6th floor window at U of M dorm


A 19-year-old Minneapolis woman has died of injuries suffered when she fell from a sixth-floor window at a University of Minnesota dormitory.

University police tell the Associated Press the woman was not a student at the U of M and was trying to climb from the window onto a rooftop area when she fell on Saturday.

WCCO reports that police arrived at the Mark G. Yudof Residence hall on the east bank of the campus early Saturday evening. The Pioneer Press reports the 19-year-old was taken to the hospital after the fall from the window, which happened shortly before 5 p.m.

The investigation continues, but the station reports that it appears to have been an accident.
