    I'm really at a loss for words here
     
  2. Considering how big SDCC is I'm surprised something like this has not happened earlier, even though it probably has.

    Poor girl.
     
  3. That is just terrible, I hope she recovers and they are able to figure out what happened!
     
  4. Update:

    The teenage cosplayer found injured and unconscious at a San Diego hotel during Comic-Con this week was not the victim of an assault, according to a San Diego Harbor Police investigation. Her injuries, police said in a statement today, were likely the result of a fall.

    On Sunday, the young woman was found with "significant injuries" in the pool area of the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina Hotel and was transported, still in her costume, to a local hospital for treatment. San Diego Police arrested 29-year-old photographer Justin Kalior in connection with the case, charging him with sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    Kalior told Polygon he was friends with the victim, and denied having sex with her or giving her any alcohol.

    The girl, who turned 17 on Sunday, was treated for skull and eye-socket fractures and cerebral hemorrhaging, among other injuries. The circumstances surrounding her injuries drew attention from friends, the cosplaying community and San Diego Comic-Con attendees who rallied support to provide police and other officials with information about what was believed to be an assault.

    A review of footage from surveillance cameras and information gathered from Comic-Con attendees concluded that the girl's injuries were not the result of an assault, but likely that of a fall, police said.

    "Her injuries, and physical evidence at the scene, were consistent with a fall from the distance of approximately six feet," a police statement reads.

    The findings do not affect the charges against Kalior, police said, and because the case involves a minor, San Diego Police say they won't release further information about the incident.

  5. San Diego is such a shit city.
     
  6. So she's just a klutz? :dafuq:
     
  7. I have a feeling alcohol was involved.. and she's only 17 so that opens up a whole new can of worms, if that's the case.

    Just glad they cleared up that it was not an assault.
     
  8. Well hopefully she recovers, nasty case none the less :(
