Mods please do not post this on Facebook.

We just had a horrible incident today, left me and some of the faculty in tears. One of our students decided to balance their stomach on the side of the stairs and fell from 15 feet to the first floor. EMT came on the scene and took her to the hospital, and one of our admin went with her. She said it was horrible, the child kept coming in and out of consciousness and was fighting off staff, not even remembering her mother, seems like she's not doing so well. We saw the security footage and you can see her falling, it was horrific.

We are praying for a safe recovery for her and her family.
