— A UNC-Chapel Hill student is in stable condition Thursday morning after falling from a fourth story dorm bathroom window.

UNC Police said 18-year-old James Bumgardner was with friends at Winston Dorm when they decided to climb out on the roof for a smoke around 3:30 a.m. On the way back inside, Bumgardner slipped on the window ledge, fell into a tree and then rolled onto the ground.

Bamgardner was taken to UNC Hospitals, and police said the incident was alcohol-related.
