A 19-year-old female Penn State student was injured late Saturday night after falling out of a window from the fifth floor of Calder Commons apartments, the State College Police Department said.
Paige Raque, a Penn State varsity cheerleader, sustained a head trauma injury after falling from her apartment window in downtown State College.
Family spokesman Randy Jepson said that Raque’s condition is “day-to-day,” and she is continuing evaluations and treatment for her head injury.
Police said she fell about 39 feet out of a window sometime around 11:45 p.m. Police do not suspect foul play or criminal activity was involved in the incident. The incident has been deemed accidental.
It is unknown how the woman fell out of the window, but police photographers and personnel were taking photos of the first floor parking deck of Calder Commons at about 1 a.m. Sunday.
Police said the investigation is ongoing.
The woman was taken to Altoona Regional Health System after the incident, but the hospital could not release any information Monday.
McKinney Properties, which owns Calder Commons, declined to comment on the accident.
Penn State Spokeswoman Lisa Powers wrote in an email that the university was made aware of the accident that occurred late Saturday night and various organizations within the university have extended their support to Raque’s family.
The Penn State community has also extended its support to Raque and her family through the Twitter hashtag “#prayforpaige.”
