Student injured in Rock City fall

9th October 2014

A student, presumed to be from the University of Nottingham, suffered what is being described as a ‘severe head injury’ having fallen from the balcony at club Rock City last night.

Attending the clubnight Crisis, the student, believed to be a 19 year old male, fell from the balcony in the main room at approximately 12.40am, with police and paramedics arriving on the scene within 4 minutes.

The man was rushed to QMC hospital, and ITV news are reporting that the police have stated that he has serious but ‘non-threatening injuries’.

In the aftermath of the incident, Rock City released the following statement, praising the behaviour of nearby students and confirming that those with late-entry tickets would be refunded:

‘We would like to apologise to our customers this evening that we unfortunately needed to close the main room due to a customer falling from the balcony. Rock City staff were quick to react and police and ambulance staff were on site within four minutes.

Given the serious nature of the incident it was entirely necessary.The individual was conscious whilst being treated, but clearly had sustained a severe head injury. He was rushed to QMC medical centre for emergency care.

Having reviewed the CCTV footage it appears the individual involved fell by their own accord and so police are not currently looking for anyone. Our hearts go out to the customer involved in the incident and we hope they recover in hospital as soon as possible.

For customers with late entry tickets who were unable to come in due to the incident we will be issuing refunds in due course.’
