Atlanta, Ga. - Saturday morning, two woman plunged 10 stories out of a window at the W Hotel in midtown Atlanta after a round of 'play fighting,' according to police.
LaShawna Threatt, an aspiring model was celebrating her 30th birthday at the posh hotel when the incident occurred. She was killed as a result of the fall.
Ciara Williams, the other woman involved in the 'play fighting,' also fell, but rolled off a ledge and then fell the remaining 20 feet onto the patio below. She remains in critical condition at Grady Memorial Hospital, Atlanta Police Department spokesperson Carlos Campos told the press.
Witnesses reported seeing the women crash through the window at about 3:15 a.m.
Atlanta Police Lt. Paul Guerrucci said It appears there was no malicious act, no foul play, they were just wrestling with each other, they hit the window, the window broke, and they fell out.
Threatt worked as a model doing party promotions for beverage companies, according to AJC.com.
Williams is a background urban dancer, who also owns her own marketing company, Passionate Chonvill told AJC.

Heart out to the family, etc,
When one of my kids was born a lady in the hospital told my wife that the nurses had named her little girl. Said they named her “Fa-mal-ee” (The baby’s bracelet had “female” on it.)
Another story is a lady said she got the name of her son out of the sleepwear section of the Sears catalog. She’d named her son “Paa-gim-mus”. (pajamas)
I work in a 98% minority environment and can attest that black women give their children stupid names. The apostrophe (’) is the in vogue thing right now and damn near every child has one in their name (example Sha’Niqua No”Torrius Jones).
I remember a story a few years ago of a newly married couple walking into their honeymoon hotel room. She gave a running leap onto the bed and bounced right through the window down six stories.
It was a very sad story, but when you think of it ...funny too...
