Man Hurts Leg due to Weather

Many students will have to watch where they are stepping during inclement weather because an OU student fell around 11 a.m. this morning outside of Gaylord Hall due to a slip cause by the weather.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health tracked slips and falls injuries during the January storm statewide and identified that 482 people fell or slipped and 353 of them needed to be transported to a health care facility.

"I just heard a commotion outside and went to look what was happening," said OU student Melanie German who was working in the Gaylord Computer Lab when the student fell.
