A student at Klein Collins High School was taken by Life Flight medical helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital after she fell from a second-floor balcony and landed on her head, a spokeswoman for the Klein Independent School District confirmed to FOX 26 News.
Rimato released the following statement on Friday afternoon:

At approximately 12:40, a 9th grade female student climbed over the 2nd story railing and fell to the floor below. Campus administration and nursing staff were immediately on the scene.
