A 15-year-old girl survived a fall from her second floor classroom window at Anjuman-e-Islam School, Mumbai Central, on Thursday morning.

According to the police, Fatima Idrisi reached school an hour early on Thursday. There was no one present in the classroom when she arrived and she fell off to sleep. Fatima woke up around 9.30am and seeing that her classmates had still not come in, she climbed over her bench and opened the window. In the process, she fell off the window. She first landed on the first floor parapet before falling to the ground.

“The girl has one paralytic hand and was unwell since the day before. She said she suffered from a blackout and couldn’t balance herself with her weak hand and fell off the window. She has sustained minor injuries and is admitted to JJ Hospital,” said Vinayak Sawade, senior inspector of Nagpada police.

“The patient has some head injuries and we are running tests to see if they are serious. She is stable and conscious at present,” said Dr TP Lahane, dean of JJ Hospital, Byculla.

The police said the students and teachers were out for some sports event and the school was empty at the time of the incident. The Nagpada police do not suspect foul play as the girl was alone and have not registered a case but are looking into the incident.
