Woman survives 50-foot fall from hospital parking garage

A woman who apparently jumped off a parking structure at Harborview Medical Center, falling 50 feet, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said that the woman went off  the sixth floor of a parking structure at the hospital and landed in the grass.

“She sounds like she’s going to live. It’s quite amazing,” Moore said.

Moore said that medics from the hospital wheeled the woman into the emergency room. The woman is described as being in her 50s.
