Man life-flighted from Lawrence’s Virginia Inn after presumed fall

November 3, 2011, 1:04 p.m. Updated November 3, 2011, 5:47 p.m.


A man was life-flighted from the Virginia Inn, 2903 W. Sixth St., after police and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical officials were called to the hotel shortly after 11:30 a.m. in response to a medical situation involving a man outside the hotel on the ground.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman said emergency officials were addressing the situation as if the man had fallen from the walkway outside the second-floor rooms, but police weren’t sure if he actually had fallen or what the extent of his injuries were. First responders found the man outside on the ground, but no one reported seeing a fall, Bordman said.

Another woman in the second-floor room where the man was staying was transported away from the scene in an ambulance, but Bordman said the nature of her injuries was also unclear.

“There are a lot of unknowns,” he said.

Police are continuing to investigate the situation, but Lawrence Police Sgt. Matt Sarna said that no foul play was suspected at this time.

Right you are Roe. There are all kinds of possibilities with this one and lord knows there are all kinds of Sherlock's on here. Might have to head out and get some popcorn before it all starts.

I do hope the guy (and girl) are OK though.

Prelude to a little rough afternoon delight.

My guess is a domestic abuse, causing the injuries to the woman, that ended when she accidentally pushed the guy over the rail.

It wasn't Domestic Violence, It was more along the lines of intoxication.

how long do you suppose it took for someone to find the owner of the motel to get help. I have stayed there several times and they always seem to be elsewhere than in the office. nice but hard to find .

I am sure the security camera caught the whole thing.

I think that it was an accident and the man was drunk but you never know in stuff like this. There is always a thousand ways it could of happed and it will take awhile to find out what really happened. But I hope the guy is okay and it was nothing to bad.
