2 college students plummet four floors while taking selfie at rooftop party
Two college students have been hospitalized after plummeting four stories while they were allegedly trying to take a selfie at a rooftop party, according to ABC News’ Philadelphia station WPVI.
The incident occurred at approximately 2 a.m. on Saturday morning when police say some Temple University students were partying and drinking on a rooftop in North Philadelphia when two women, who were reportedly trying to take a selfie together, somehow ended up falling off of the roof and landed in an alleyway four floors below.

"I feel bad for my friend who was there and did see it and had a really rough night trying to deal with that emotionally," said Temple University student Allison Byrne.
According to WPVI, the building’s management company says that the building has a rooftop deck with a parapet wall and railings, but at least one student who has been up there before says it just isn’t safe.

"There's not enough room blocking you from falling off, “said Temple University student Arnav Johri. “So if you're drinking and you run right into it, it's really easy to slip right off because it only comes to like a little halfway between your knee and hip."
The circumstances around the accident and the events leading up to it are not clear. Temple Police are handling the investigation, which is also being assisted by the Philadelphia Police.

This is not the first time a Temple University student has fallen off of a rooftop while attending a rooftop party. In 2013, 19-year-old freshman, Ali Fausnaught, was at a rooftop party just blocks away from where this latest incident occurred and tripped over a 10-inch ledge around the roof of the building and fell three floors to her death.
Neighbors say that not even COVID-19 has put a stop to students partying and some are hoping that this tragic incident is a wake-up call for many of them.
