Officials probe student's fall from balcony

Authorities are investigating a student's fall from a balcony yesterday at Marlborough High School, School Committee member Robert Seymour told the Globe.

Seymour and city officials did not identify the teen or release her condition. Seymour said she was being treated at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.

Superintendent Barbara E. McGann wrote in an e-mail to parents that a "medical incident" had occurred and that a student was transferred to a medical facility and was receiving treatment. At a press conference yesterday, an aide to Mayor Nancy Stevens said the city would release no additional information.

Several students said they were detained in class for about an hour afterwards. A school crisis team offered support to parents and students last night at the high school library.
