University of Iowa student falls from six-floor residence hall window

A University of Iowa student has been hospitalized after falling out of a sixth-floor window at Mayflower Residence Hall early Thursday.

UI police were called to Mayflower, 1110 North Dubuque St., at 4:22 a.m. for a report of a student falling out the window and landing on the hall’s north roof — meaning he fell about five stories, according to UI Public Safety spokeswoman Hayley Bruce.

Initial reports are the fall was an accident. Students said they were “playing around in a residence hall room when one student leaned back and fell through the screen of an open window,” Bruce said.
