Fall from Window

Published on July 22nd, 2018

William Strasner, a nursing home resident who was allowed to fall to his death after trying to climb down a makeshift rope from a third-floor window at Emerald South Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Buffalo.  Patient windows normally don’t open more than 7 inches but a device used to secure Strasner’s window was apparently missing.  Where the heck were the staff?

Police say they believe Strasner was not being supervised when trying to leave the facility down a rope made from bedding and clothing he’d tied together when he fell more than 30 feet.  An employee found him. He died on the way to the hospital.

This incident is the second death at the nursing home in two years. In 2016, Ruth Murray was fatally beaten by a dementia patient.
