This is one of the saddest stories we’ve ever heard, get ya Kleenex…
The boyfriend of LaShawna Threatt said he grabbed on to the back of her hair as she was falling out of the W Atlanta-Midtown hotel.
…“Thank God it wasn’t daytime; I would have jumped out, no question,” Ray Hamilton told the AJC. “I couldn’t see anything out that window, though, it was pitch black.”
“Everybody had just walked in and kicked off their shoes,” he said.
“There was no unruly activity, there was no one drunk, there was no party in the room,” he said.
Hamilton and another friend were standing next to Threatt and Williams, who were near the window, horseplaying, tickling each other and hugging, Hamilton said.
“LaShawna, she’s just a very affectionate person,” Hamiltion said.
Williams’ back was to the window, and Threatt was standing in front of her, Hamilton said.
“They leaned back a little bit, and they just went out,” he said.
After cutting his hand on the glass attempting to grab his girlfriend, Hamilton ran outside to check the condition of the girls.
“I come out of the door, see someone on the floor, and I just drop to the ground … I crawled over to her, covered her and said, ‘Hey, baby, stay with me, it’s going to be OK,” said Hamilton before he realized that the woman on the ground was Williams.
He stood up to look for Threatt but by that time Atlanta police officers had arrived.
“It’s been a nightmare for me,” Hamilton said. “How do two girls who weigh maybe 120 pounds a piece, standing at the window, build up enough force to not only break it but go out immediately?”
R.I.P. Lashawna you’ll be missed by your friends and family.
