Marquette student who fell off balcony improving


Doctors have upgraded the condition of a Marquette University student who fell off a balcony at an off-campus apartment building.

Froedtert Hospital says the 21-year-old man has been updated from critical condition to satisfactory condition.

Milwaukee Fire Department Deputy Chief Jack Christianson says the student was leaning against a railing when it gave away just after 2 a.m. Friday.

The university has not released the name of the student at his family's request.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the university is investigating along with the City of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Police Department and the landlord.
