OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say a teenage girl had to be rushed to the hospital after she fell from a third story window over the weekend.

The incident reportedly happened at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday at a home on 52nd Street. Police said the investigation revealed that several juveniles were at the location for a party and had been consuming alcoholic beverages. Investigators said that during the party, the victim, identified as a 14-year-old girl from Worcester County, attempted to exit the unit through a third story window and fell. The victim was conscious and alert when officers arrived on the scene, but police said she was disoriented.

The victim was treated at the scene by Ocean City paramedics and was then flown to the University of Maryland Medical Center's Shock Trauma in Baltimore as a precaution by Maryland State Police helicopter. She was later released from Shock Trauma to the custody of her parents.

Foul play is not suspected in this incident, police noted.

Police said the name of the victim or the other juveniles involved will not be released to the public. The findings of the incident will be forwarded to Worcester County Social Services for further investigation, police said.
