Recent news reports in Atlanta have detailed the tragedy of a woman who fell to her death from the W Hotel in Atlanta this summer.
A group of friends were celebrating in a room on the 10th floor. Two girls, allegedly, began horseplay that led to them leaning against the window. The glass gave way, and the two women fell through the glass. One woman landed on the roof just below and is recovering from her injuries, but the other fell to her death on the street ten stories below.
