Yeah, I'm not sure about that second one. The guy was 18. Not sure why she was arrested... Losing her job, sure, but arrested?

Re: Darwin Award Candidates - Student Dies, Another Injured In Fall From UNC Dorm

I am going to vote for poorly written. How about this from the original article: "their momentum caused them to fall through a hallway window three floors up and land onto a concrete ramp outside the basement laundry room."

They fell three floors up?

A similar episode happened while I was a student there... someone got drunk and fell off some stairs that were on the outside of a building and died...
