Naked Girl Falls From Apartment Window, Survives

A naked 17-year-old girl who was drinking with a young man she had recently met fell from an apartment window in northwest Moscow and survived, RIA-Novosti reported Monday.

The girl was hospitalized with a concussion, blunt chest trauma and a fractured left shoulder and forearm, the state-run news agency reported, citing a police source.

Police did not specify which floor the girl had fallen from or elaborate on the circumstances that led up to the fall.

The incident occurred just before noon Sunday at 22 Ulitsa Isakovskogo, Corpus 1, near the Strogina metro station. Witnesses called police to the scene.

"The girl came from the Voronezh region and was renting an apartment in the Moscow suburb of Korolyova together with a girlfriend. On the unfortunate day, she was drinking in the apartment with a young man whom she had recently met," a police source told RIA-Novosti.

Interfax had earlier reported that the girl was temporarily residing with her father. RIA-Novosti reported that the girl was drunk at the time of the fall.
