After the fatal fall of a 17-year-old at a graduation ceremony in Berlin-Neukölln, Berlin's Education Senator Katharina Günther-Wünsch (CDU) was concerned. "I am deeply dismayed by this accident. My condolences go to the family, relatives and the school community. The exact circumstances must now be clarified," said the senator on Monday morning to the German Press Agency.
According to a police spokesman, the 17-year-old fell through a plastic skylight and was fatally injured. As the police announced on Monday morning, two people climbed onto a roof window of the Estrel Hotel on Sonnenallee during a celebration on Monday night. That's when the fall happened. Paramedics took the teenager to a hospital. It was there that she succumbed to her injuries.
