Father: UK student who fell from apartment balcony remains in coma

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) - The father of the University of Kentucky student who fell from a fourth-floor apartment balcony says his son remains in a coma.

State Rep. Chris Harris, D - Forest Hills, says his son Corbin Harris remains at University of Kentucky Medical Center.

Harris, 19, fell from a balcony at The Lex Apartments in late August. Police ruled out any criminal actions in the fall, and the family has stated the fall was a "serious accident" in an earlier statement.

"Leslie and I want to thank everyone for the love and prayers we’ve received for Corbin over the past 11 days," Harris said in a Facebook post, "There has never been a tragedy like this in either of our lives and there simply aren’t words to express how grateful we are for the outpouring of compassion and care that has been shown to us."

The family says Harris is showing positive signs, but they do not know if he will regain consciousness or make a full recovery. They continue to ask for prayers.
