TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State University police say a student has escaped with only minor injuries after falling from a sixth-floor balcony of a campus housing building.
Police responded to a call around 4:50 a.m. Thursday after a student falling at University Towers in Tempe.
Officers found the man on the ground responsive and conscious.
ASU police say he suffered a cut on his forehead, an injured shoulder and possibly rib bruising and was taken to a Scottsdale hospital for further evaluation.
