Student Dies After Fall From Dorm Room Window
Live 5 News
The 19-year-old University of South Carolina student has died nearly a week after he crashed through a glass window and fell four stories of his dorm room.
Taylor Cothran fell from his Capstone dorm window early Friday morning. The Greenville native had been in intensive care at Palmetto Richland hospital since the incident a week ago.
The Richland County coroner's office confirms that Taylor Cothran died.
University spokesman Russ McKinney says authorities are still investigating the death.
The freshman apparently went through the window during the early morning hours last Friday and hit a first-floor roof. McKinney says Cothran was alone in the room when he fell.
Cothran was a graduate of J.L. Mann High School where he had been a member of the lacrosse team. He was a Capstone Scholar at USC.
On a website maintained by his family, a post made on Wednesday indicated that Cothran had taken a "drastic turn for the worse" and that his family was preparing to say their goodbyes.
In an updated posting following his death, his family thanked well-wishers and asked for continued prayers.
