File # 2021-11943

An investigation by the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit has concluded that nobody pushed the woman who fell two stories from a hotel room on Tuesday evening.

On July 20, 2021 at approximately 8:05 p.m. Comox Valley RCMP received a report that a woman had suffered serious injuries after falling from a second story hotel room window in Courtenay. Frontline officers attended immediately and were met with the allegation that the woman had been pushed from the window of the hotel room.

Investigators from the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit were called out to the scene and immediately started gathering surveillance footage and witness statements from the area. After a careful review of the evidence, it was apparent that 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.
