A student fell at approximately 1:54 a.m. Sunday from the second-floor porch of an off-campus residence onto a concrete driveway, the Tulane University Police Department daily activity report states. 

An officer responded to the scene and found the student unconscious and breathing while lying on the ground. The owner of the residence told police the student was sitting on the ledge and fell back for no apparent reason. 

New Orleans Emergency Medical Services responded and transported the student to Tulane Medical Center.

The daily activity report did not mention further details about the student’s condition.

This case is not related to the death of a student who fell off a balcony in Phelps House Saturday morning:

More information to come.
