NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Yale University freshman has survived a four-story fall from a dormitory window.

School spokesman Tom Conroy said in an email Tuesday that the student fell from a window in Bingham Hall at about 2 p.m. Monday. Yale didn't have classes Monday because of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.

The student was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital. His condition hasn't been released.

Yale College Dean Jonathan Holloway tells the Yale Daily News that the male freshman is expected to make a full recovery.

Conroy didn't indicate whether the fall was an accident but says there will be no police investigation.
