A woman is today fighting for her life in hospital after she ‘fell head first out of a window’ at a Doncaster house.

Police are investigating after the incident on Abbott Street, Hexthorpe, where officers say the 30-year-old was found outside the property.

She was taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary with head injuries after the incident on Thursday at 11.41pm and remains in a serious condition.

A 32-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of domestic assault and remains in police custody.

Residents on the street spoke of how they heard a ‘high pitched scream’ on the night and said they had been left reeling by the news.

One neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “I heard a smash, and then a really high pitched scream.

“I went to see what had happened and there was a woman lying on the street.

“The emergency services got there not long after.

“It’s not what you expect to hear when you’re falling asleep.”

Another added “I’ve heard that she fell head first out of the window.

“I first realised what was going on when I saw all the flashing lights from the police cars.

“The police’s crime scene investigation team turned up not long after and have been here ever since.

“I really hope that the woman is OK.”

Part of the street was sealed off with police tape yesterday.

A third resident added “It has come as a big shock.”

The woman remains in hospital, where she is understood to be fighting for her life.
