A 22-year-old woman jumped off a parking garage in downtown Evanston this morning, according to authorities.

Shortly before 10:45 a.m., the woman jumped off the parking garage at 1800 Maple Ave., said Dwight Hohl, division chief of the Evanston fire department.

She is being treated at Evanston Hospital, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. He did not respond to a request for further information.

Ten days ago, a former Northwestern student jumped to his death from another downtown parking garage. University spokesman Al Cubbage said the woman has “no connection” to NU.
