LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Lincoln police say investigators have spoken with a Texas teenager who was critically injured when she fell from a six-floor hotel window and don’t believe her fall was due to foul play.
18-year-old Brittany Turner, of Houston, was able to speak Monday with investigators. Police say the window Turner fell from was broken, but Capt. David Beggs wouldn’t release other details.
Turner was in Lincoln with other Houston high school students for the International Thespian Festival.
After falling from the window at the Embassy Suites in downtown Lincoln, she landed on a second-floor balcony.
Her mother, Lynn Hamilton, rushed to Lincoln to be with her daughter. She says Turner is an accomplished actor and plans to attend Howard University in Washington this fall.
