Mt. Pleasant Teen Injures Head Jumping From Window

Posted: Updated:

Police say the teen is still alive but his condition is unknown at this time.

Police were breaking up a party in Mt. Pleasant early Saturday morning when they say the teen jumped from a second story window to escape and hit his head on a railing and then on the frozen ground.

Police say the teen is still alive but not sure of his condition at this time.

The jump was about 20 feet in the air.

In April 2011, Central Michigan University senior Matt Herrod has a fall almost exactly like this one at a party.

He hit his head on the grass but it was frozen solid, almost like concrete.

9&10's Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jacob Johnson spoke with Herrod on his climb back and have more details.
