Minnesota student remains in coma after long fall

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Minnesota State University student remains in a coma in Milwaukee, weeks after he fell from a parking ramp after a night of drinking.

A Mankato Free Press report says heartbroken family and friends are still trying to piece together the circumstances of that night.

Giovanni Quiroz of North Mankato, Minnesota, was drinking in Milwaukee on Aug. 16. He became separated from friends and didn't have his phone to contact them.

His friends waited for 30 minutes and then went to a friend's place, figuring Quiroz would join them. Instead they learned he'd fallen off a parking ramp about two blocks away.

Friends say an unknown person has since been using Quiroz's phone to upload video and photos. His family says they just wish they could figure out what happened.
