Close friends of Alexandra Pew have visited her at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing and report she’s doing well in the aftermath of her six-story fall Sunday, said Peter Fayroian, head of school at Greenhills, where Pew is a senior.
Pew, who fell through a window on the sixth flour of a dormitory lounge, was listed in critical condition Tuesday afternoon at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, said spokeswoman Laura Hall.
Fayroian said it’s expected that Pew will come home by the weekend or be transferred to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. Fayroian said Monday Pew is expected to recover from her injuries with time and hard work.
Pew, known to her friends as Lexi, has been able to speak with her friends at the hospital, Fayroian said. Pew’s classmates continue to be relieved that her injuries weren’t more serious. Some have made cards to send to her, he said.
“I think everybody shares their relief that things weren’t worse and are happy that she’s going to recover.”
Pew fell through the window, shattering it, during a game of catch in a sixth-floor lounge of North Case Hall, where she was visiting friends for the weekend, MSU police said Monday. MSU Police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor confirmed Tuesday night that alcohol was not involved in the accident.
Fayroian said Pew suffered broken bones in the fall, but he could provide no other details about her injuries.
In the wake of the accident, MSU officials Monday said they had begun inspecting dormitory windows.
