Two Temple students hurt in overnight fall from apartment building

Two Temple students fell from a building on N. Bouvier St. in Philadelphia, leaving both in critical but stable condition.

Two 19-year-old Temple students were hospitalized Saturday after falling from the roof of an off-campus apartment in the early morning, according to reports from Philadelphia police and the university.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. on the 1800 block of Bouvier Street, about six blocks west of Broad Street in North Philadelphia.

One student was taken to Temple University Hospital with injuries to her right leg and left ankle and was listed in stable condition. Another was taken to Jefferson Hospital with multiple injuries and was listed in critical but stable condition, according to police. No further information was available.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is encouraged to call Temple Police at 215-204-1234 or supply information anonymously at 215-204-6493.

Early this year, a third-year Drexel College of Medicine student fell to his death after missing his mark while jumping from rooftop to rooftop on the 1200 block of Buttonwood Street.
