Fall From Bridge
University of Minnesota Police are investigating how a woman fell out of a 6th floor window at a residence hall early Saturday evening. Authorities say the woman was taken to the hospital after she fell from the window at Yudof Residence Hall on the campus’ east bank shortly before 6 p.m. They say she is not a U of M student. Investigators are continuing to look into what happened, but say it appears to be an accident.
Police say 20-year-old Stefon Banks was crossing the bridge with friends and hopped over a railing he thought had a landing on the other side. Instead Banks fell to Raspberry Island below.
