Man injured in fall at UW fraternity

SEATTLE — A 19-year-old who apparently fell from a window at a University of Washington fraternity was found by his friends bleeding in an alley.

Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said the man was unable to communicate when medics were called to the scene at 3:17 a.m. Tuesday. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries from multiple broken bones.

Moore said University of Washington police were asked to investigate because the man is believed to be a student.

It’s unknown how long he was in the alley before he was found by his friends. There were no witnesses to the fall, but a third-story window was open.
