The Comox Valley RCMP has concluded that no foul play was involved after a woman fell from a second-storey window at a hotel in Courtenay.
According to police, the incident took place on July 20, 2021, at approximately 8:05 p.m.
Police say they received a report that a woman had suffered serious injuries after falling from a second-storey hotel room window.
Frontline officers attended the scene and were told that the woman had been allegedly pushed.
Investigators with the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit were called to the scene in order to gather information.
The Major Crimes Unit collected security footage of the area as well as took down witness statements who were in the vicinity of the hotel.
Their investigation has led RCMP to the conclusion that nobody pushed the woman. Police say that a “careful review of the evidence” proved it was apparent that the woman had fallen on her own and was not pushed.
“Unfortunately, there are still some people in our community who believe this woman was pushed from the window” said Cst. Monika Terragni, Media Relations Officer, Comox Valley RCMP. “We want to make it clear that she was not pushed and any acts of vigilantism will be subject to their own investigation.”
The woman is currently in hospital, but is expected to recover from her injuries.
