Penn State Alumnus In Serious Condition After Falling From Garner Street Parking Deck

A 24-year-old Penn State graduate is in serious condition after falling from the second level of a parking garage on South Garner Street early Friday morning, according to the State College Police Department.

The man fell 15 feet into a “parking island” — a section of dirt in the middle of parking lots designated for planting trees or other plants — facing towards Calder Way. He was found face down in the parking island and was brought to Mount Nittany Medical Center after police responded to the scene around 3:20 a.m. on Friday.

He was then transferred to UPMC Altoona’s Trauma Center for “closed head injuries.” He was declared in serious condition soon after arriving at UPMC Altoona. Video evidence from surveillance cameras in the garage show that the fall was accidental, but alcohol was involved in the incident. No charges were filed.

We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
