  CHAMPAIGN -- A UI student is in the hospital after falling three stories from a house. It happened at midnight Saturday, in the 300 block of East Armory.

Witnesses say it happened at the Alpha Chi Ro fraternity house during a party. When police got there, they say 100 people were running from the area. They found an unconscious 19-year old woman on the ground. Witnesses say she was near the fire escape on the third floor of the house before it happened.

"Deep down, it hurts you because you wonder why someone would let someone intoxicated get so close to a window or balcony that she could fall out, from the third story," said freshman Conrad Wojtan.

The student is being treated at the hospital. Members of Alpha Chi Ro say they're seeking legal counsel and wouldn't comment.
