Student jumps from Piedmont North balcony

A Georgia State student jumped off a fifth floor balcony Wednesday night, according to eye witness reports and Georgia State University Police Department Chief of Police Joseph Spillane.

The female student jumped from a Piedmont North balcony after smoking synthetic marijuana.

“We do have a student that apparently smoked some synthetic marijuana called spice and she jumped off the fifth floor balcony and landed and we transported her to Grady hospital,” Spillane said. “She’s still alive.”

The incident is currently being classified as a suicide attempt, although the motive is currently unknown.

“We call it a suicide attempt but according to my guys on my team … they said she used some kind of synthetic drug called spice.”
