Man brought to hospital after Main Building fall Saturday

first_imgA man fell in the Main Building on Saturday evening shortly after the Trumpets Under the Dome Concert began at 6:20 p.m., University spokesman Dennis Brown said Tuesday morning.“Notre Dame emergency personnel responded at 6:28 p.m. Saturday to assist an individual who fell in a stairway in the Main Building,” Brown said. “He was transported to Memorial Hospital.”Representatives from Memorial Hospital did not immediately return The Observer’s phone calls. Ann Wassmann of Spring Lake, Mich., attended Trumpets Under the Dome and witnessed the incident. When the concert was over, she said she exited near the back and witnessed the fall in a stairwell in her peripheral vision.“Just as I reached the ground floor and was proceeding to the door, I saw something dark drop in my peripheral vision,” she said in an email to The Observer on Tuesday afternoon. “As I stepped through the door I heard a very loud bang – like something heavy hitting a metal surface.“I turned to see what had happened. The door had closed, so all I could see were people on the stairs, and the horrified looks on their faces. People were crying and calling out ‘call 911’.”Wassmann said two “fire engine-type vehicles” arrived shortly after with paramedics. Brown said he had not been provided with any additional information.“It was weird to walk around to the front of the Main Building, meeting up with joyous people who knew nothing of the tragic accident we had just experienced,” Wassmann said.Tags: observer staff reportlast_img read more
