Model Falls Out Window From Atlanta Hotel

Model Falls Out Hotel - Police were called to a hotel in Atlanta after a model, identified as Lashawna Threatt, falls out the window from her room. She was celebrating her 30th birthday with another female friend. Threatt died at an Atlanta hospital.

Another woman who was Threatt’s friend was attending the birthday bash when both of them crashed to the ground from the 10th floor. Apparently the two women were playing wrestling when they came too close to the window and Threatt plunged to her death with her wrestling partner. The other woman got seriously injured while Threatt died on the spot. According to the police reports, the party was at W Midtown Hotel where the guests were staying on the 10th floor; as Threatt and the other woman fell from the floor they crashed on the glass ceiling above a sunroom about four or five stories above the ground.

According to the investigating officer, “They were play wrestling and the next thing you know, they went toward the window and through the window and out they went. According to the witnesses, there was no arguing during the hours leading up to this, either, so it’s really a tragic accident,” Guerrucci said. The officer is Lt. Paul Guerrucci, commander of the Atlanta Police Department’s homicide unit.

“Rescuers found Threatt dead on the sunroom roof. The second woman, whom police would not identify, tumbled off that same roof and fell onto an outdoor patio outside the hotel. She was taken to Grady Hospital with multiple broken bones and other injuries and listed in critical condition. Friends say Threatt was the best friend of the injured woman.”
