SULLIVAN -- The Illinois Department of Public Health is investigating a death at a nursing home. It happened Friday morning at Mason Point. The Moultrie County Coroner said 92-year old Consuela Wren fell out a two-story window.

She died from her injuries at the scene. The coroner said Wren suffered from dementia.

He said she removed the window screen and likely didn't realize she was two stories high. Investigators are checking if rules under the Nursing Home Care Act were being followed at the home.
