Showering Woman Falls Out Window, Down Shaft
A woman who was showering in her second-floor Logan Heights apartment fell through a window and into a 15-foot shaft Tuesday morning.
She landed at the bottom of the light shaft and firefighters rescued her by lifting her into a first-floor apartment window, a fire official said. The woman suffered injuries and was taken to a hospital.
The accident occurred about 8:10 a.m. at the two-story Casa Del Sol apartment building on Commercial Street at the corner of Hensley Street.
The woman was in her shower, lost her balance and fell through an open 2-foot by 3-foot window into the shaft, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department Battalion Chief David Connor said.
“It was an odd or freakish type of accident,” Connor said.
