A man in his early 20s suffered critical head injuries after he fell or jumped through a window while attending a concert at the Petersen Events Center in Oakland Wednesday night, according to emergency dispatchers.

A concertgoer said he saw a hole in a window and estimated that the man fell between 30 and 40 feet to the sidewalk below.

Authorities did not identify the injured man, who was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland. Pittsburgh homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident, which occurred shortly after 9 p.m.

A concert by the band “Furthur,” which features two of the original members of the "Grateful Dead,” was taking place at Petersen.

Man injured after fall from Petersen Events Center window
Wednesday, March 30, 2011
By Dan Majors, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Pittsburgh police are investigating the fall of a 20-year-old man through a fourth floor window at the Petersen Events Center on the University of Pittsburgh campus in Oakland.

Lt. Dan Herrmann said that the young man, who police believe was attending a Furthur concert with his father, went through the window around 9 p.m. and fell to a sloped hillside bordering a cement walkway. Police said they were not sure whether he landed on the hillside or the cement, as they cordoned off the scene and took measurements. He fell near Terrace Street, just across from the entrance to Pitt School of Medicine's Scaife Hall.

The man was taken to UPMC Presbyterian, where he is critical condition with head injuries.

Lt. Herrmann said that there had been at least one witness who said the man appeared to have gotten into a three-point stance, "like a football player," yelled "Hike!" and charged the window, which he estimated was an inch thick and double-paned. Police are looking for more witnesses. He added that the man's father was with him at the hospital and they do not suspect foul play.

Toxicology reports are pending.

Hundreds of similar windows, about three feet by six feet wide, make up the building's front facade. Lt. Herrmann said the windows are safe.
