The incident occurred around 1 a.m. Sunday when 19-year-old Griffin Healey fell from a second story balcony at the Lambda Chi Alpha house in Pullman.
Witnesses told Pullman police that Healey was trying to sit on a railing when he lost his balance and fell backwards, landing on his head. Police say alcohol was involved.
This is the fourth case of a student falling from a building on the Washington State campus this year.
