WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- DC Police are investigating an unusual incident at Georgetown University, where an 18-year-old fell from a tall building.


Officials say police were alerted to the incident around 1:43 Tuesday morning. Officers arrived at the scene at 37th and O Streets, where they found student, Michelle Konkoly, 18, of Eagleville, Penn., had fallen from a 5th floor window. Officials say the incident appears to be accidental, and alcohol may have been involved.

DC Police tells 9NEWS NOW her roommate reports the woman was drinking at a house party, but not on campus.  She tried to open the window, because she was hot.  She was alone in the room at the time.

Police say the victim was conscious and breathing when she was transported to George Washington Hospital. The victim is said to be in serious condition, with extensive internal injuries, broken ankles, legs, and back.
