A Palmetto Senior High School student was rushed to a hospital after she reportedly jumped from the 3rd-story of a staircase at the school.
The incident was reported around 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
Authorities say they received a call about a possible fall at 7431 Southwest 120th St.
Video of the incident shows a female student standing on the outside of a staircase the railing before she let go:
“The minute that the security guard that was going upstairs got there and she saw her, she just let go and stepped off,” witnesses said.
The school was placed on a brief lockdown as authorities attended to the student.
Her condition is unknown at this time. It is also unclear why the student jumped from the staircase.
