NYMA student falls from third-floor window

CORNWALL – A 14-year-old student at New York Military Academy in Cornwall fell from a window in her third-floor dormitory room on Wednesday night.

She was able to re-enter the dorm on her own power, but Cornwall Police Chief Todd Hazard told Mid-Hudson News that she was flown by helicopter to Westchester Medical Center as a precaution since her parents were not present.

The girl and her roommate both said she was trying to force open the window when she fell an estimated 36 feet to the ground, Hazard said.

A woman at NYMA said the school would not comment about the incident.
