Comox Valley RCMP have ruled a woman’s fall from a second-story window of a Courtenay hotel on Tuesday evening as accidental.

The Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit has concluded that nobody pushed the woman.

On July 20th, just after 8 p.m., RCMP received a report that a woman had suffered serious injuries after falling from a second-story hotel room window in Courtenay.

Officers were told the woman had been pushed from the window of the hotel room, however, after reviewing surveillance footage and witness statements from the area, investigators determined the woman had fallen and was not pushed.

“Unfortunately, there are still some people in our community who believe this woman was pushed from the window,” said Cst. Monika Terragni, Media Relations Officer, Comox Valley RCMP.

“We want to make it clear that she was not pushed and any acts of vigilantism will be
subject to their own investigation.”

The woman remains in hospital and is expected to recover.
