Ice Falls Off Medical Building, Strikes Woman

Falling ice hit a woman walking by a Philadelphia medical building Monday.

The ice fell off Tenet Health's building near the Drexel University’s College of Medicine at Hahnemann University Hospital along N 15th Street, near Vine Street, in Center City around 12:30 p.m.

After being struck, the woman could be seen sitting up and talking to employees from the hospital -- in their scrubs -- who tried to comfort her.

No word yet on the severity of her injuries.

More ice could be seen hanging off the building.

NBC10 reached out to Tenet for comment. A spokesman sent the following statement:

We are committed to the safety of everyone on our campus. While we work to assess the situation, we have blocked off the walkway around the New College Building to protect pedestrians.
