The Associated Press   

PULLMAN — A Washington State University student is in critical condition in a Spokane hospital after falling from a fraternity house balcony.

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.
