Northern Ireland man fights for life after fall from first-floor window of flat

By Michael Sheils McNamee

A man who fell from the window of an apartment in Co Down was fighting for his life last night.

The Ambulance Service was called to High Street in Donaghadee shortly after 2.30am yesterday where a male in his 20s had been found lying unconscious in the street.

He was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast, where he was being treated in intensive care last night.

The hospital said that he was in a critical condition.

The man has been named locally as Graham Brown.

A woman is currently helping police with their investigations into what happened.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, local Ulster Unionist councillor Mark Brooks said it was his understanding that there had been a party at the apartment at the time of the incident.

"There has been a lot of social activity around the flat," he said.

"It has been noticed locally.

"Everybody would be aware that there had been a lot of activity there."

Mr Brooks, who owns Bluebells Restaurant in the town, said that anti-social incidents were uncommon in Donaghadee.

"We have a thriving High Street and a restaurant culture now, we are a foodie destination," he said.

"But we live in the real world and these things happen."

The PSNI has appealed for anyone with any information about the incident to contact Bangor on the non-emergency number 101 quoting the reference 268 with the date 24/09/2017.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
