That's my friend. He's not injured in my mind. He's paralyzed from the chest region down...fractured neck, sternum, vertebrates n his back, and both lungs have collapsed. He's on life support. I love you Benson...we're all praying for you.

tragic but avoidable (like most accidents) --keep yourself safe; don't get uncontrollably out of hand, the results can be devastating

here is the articles that was in the digitalburg page...

WARRENSBURG, Mo.-- A University of Central Missouri student was taken by air ambulance to St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City early Thursday morning after an incident on campus.

According to the university’s Department of Public Safety, Benson Chukwundi Owere, 20, who resides at 502 Fitzgerald Hall, was visiting residents of a room on the fourth floor when he stood on a chair, lost his balance, and fell through the screened window.

Sergeant Greg Biesemeyer of UCM Public Safety said Owere fell from the fourth floor window and knocked out windows on the third and second floors on his way to the ground.

Digitalburg.com was unable to obtain information regarding Owere's condition. Several other media outlets have reported that Owere was listed in critical condition at a Kansas City hospital.

A friend who was at the residence hall Thursday said Owere is a graduate of Park Hill South High School.

The incident took place shortly before 3:55 a.m., and was reported via multiple calls to 911. The university’s Department of Public Safety and the Division of Student Affairs are continuing to investigate the incident

so 1st off he souldnt of even been drinking cause he was underage and 2nd why would you stand on a chair infront of a window if youve been drinking? It wont end to good just like it did. Hope everyone learns from this guy not to drink and be stupid! Still sad though!
