It’s the sudden stop

A 29 year old Blair, Wisconsin man is recovering after a 16-story fall from a Twin Cities hotel early Saturday morning. Authorities are not releasing much information about the condition of Joshua Hanson except to say that he suffered multiple broken bones and internal injuries. Hanson and his friends were staying at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Minneapolis while attending a darts tournament. Hanson crashed through a window in a hotel hallway.

Felig Abrahamson was staying on the same floor as Hanson, and reported hearing a banging sound, followed by breaking glass. Abrahamson ran with Hanson’s friends to the street outside the hotel lobby as paramedics reached the scene. They could hear Hanson screaming. “I couldn’t believe he was still alive,” said Abrahamson. Media in the Twin Cities reported that horseplay in the hall, after a night of drinking, may have led to the crash through the double-paned window.
