Fall From Cocoa Beach Hotel Ends in Fatality

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 12, 2020

Reports began to emerge today regarding an incident involving an Orlando woman in Cocoa Beach who died in an incident that took place at a Cocoa Beach hotel sometime on Sunday, May 10th. What we know at the time of this writing is that the woman, who was not named in the initial report, was either staying at or visiting a Cocoa Beach hotel on the day in question when they walked to the balcony and fell four stories to the ground below.

It is not clear if the woman was alone at the time of the incident, but it seems fully verified that the incident took place sometime around 10:00 in the morning at a Quality Inn and Suites located at 3901 North Atlantic Avenue, just on the beach.

This particular Quality Inn location features three different buildings. One of these rises six stories from the street. It is not clear if the woman fell from this building, but it is known that the injuries that the woman suffered after the fall were severe. When the paramedics reached the scene, they quickly assessed the damage suffered by the individual as being incredibly severe. She was then taken by ambulance from the hotel’s grounds and rushed to Cape Canaveral Hospital.

After arriving at this medical facility, the doctors there determined that the injuries suffered by the individual were beyond what they were equipped to deal with. As a result, the fall victim was then airlifted from Cape Canaveral Hospital and flown to Holmes Regional Medical Center. Here, she again received emergency treatment from skilled doctors and nurses, but the injuries that she sustained as a result of the original fall proved to be ultimately beyond the scope of the medical professionals. She was pronounced dead sometime after reaching this second hospital.

At the time of this writing, it is believed that the investigators working on the case were working to both identify the woman’s next of kin and understand what caused her to fall from the balcony. Nothing has currently been ruled out, including the possibility that it was a problem with the building’s structure itself that caused the woman to fatally fall.
