NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Two assistant coaches apparently wrestling with each other fell through a hotel window Tuesday morning and fell four stories to a concrete sidewalk, leaving one in serious condition.
The American Football Coaches Association is holding its annual convention at the Opryland Hotel, and hotel security had been called around 4:10 a.m. with a noise complaint when officers found a broken window and Scott Coy and Darren DeMeio outside on the ground below.
``They wrestled each other too close to the window going through it and down to the ground floor,'' Nashville police spokeswoman Kris Mumford said. ``That's four floors.''
Coy, 29, is 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds from Newcastle, Pa. He was in critical condition and having surgery Tuesday afternoon at Vanderbilt University. DeMeio, 24, is 6-4, 225 pounds and from Clinton, Ohio. Police said he was in fair condition but remained in the hospital as of Tuesday afternoon.
t immediately returned Tuesday afternoon.
Hotel spokeswoman Kim Keelor said the window the men fell through was double-paned with a strong wooden sash in the middle.
``It's very sad. I definitely want to express our sympathy to their families. It's just a very strange and unfortunate occurrence,'' she said.
