McNeese student injured in fall from parking garage

A McNeese State University student was injured Tuesday in a fall from the campus’ three-story parking garage.

In a statement to the American Press, President Daryl Burckel said the injured student received immediate care and attention from campus police, witnesses and emergency response personnel and their family was notified.

Burckel said the student is expected to recover from the injuries.

“At this time the privacy of the student and the student’s family is of utmost concern for us,” he said.

Burckel said the director of the school’s counseling center has visited the student and their family at the hospital to offer support.

“The health and safety of our McNeese students are paramount to our faculty, to our staff and to me,” Burckel said. “We recognize that challenges arise in life and our counseling center is always ready” to offer support.
