31-Mar-18 – A beer can fell off a balcony in River North, according to the woman who was hit in the head with it.

Chicago police say the 22-year-old woman was walking on State Street on March 17 at about 3 p.m. when she says a beer can was “thrown” from a balcony in the east tower of Marina City.

The woman, whose name police did not release, sustained minor injury when the can struck her on her head, but she declined medical treatment.

Police officers spoke with an assistant property manager, who said she was unable to determine exactly which balcony the beer can came from.
