Model’s Boyfriend Gives Tearful Account of How She Fell Out the Window

Your Black World reports.

LaShawna Threatt, a model in Atlanta, died this weekend, as she fell out the window at the W hotel.  She fell ten stories and died upon impact.  Her boyfriend spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and gave a shocking account of how it happened.

…“Thank God it wasn’t daytime; I would have jumped out, no question,” Ray Hamilton said to 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.”

Hamilton says he was standing next to Threatt and another friend who fell, Ciara Williams near the window.  The women were horseplaying and tickling each other.  Williams landed on a balcony after her fall, but Threatt fell to her death on the ground below.

“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.  He said he grabbed his girlfriend’s hair to try to keep her from falling.

“They leaned back a little bit, and they just went out,” he said.

Hamilton said that he cut his hand trying to save his girlfriend.  After she fell, he went outside to check on their condition.

“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.

“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?”

    he did it and forgive me if im wrong. who told the first story of it being a party and her and her buddy being drunk? He said thank god it wasnt day time because he would have jumped too, is he afraid  of the dark? im just tryna understand that part. He is correct, those ladies shouldnt been able to go through a window like that unless force was used…. There was no playing and all but yet he said they went through from a tickle game? They need to check out his story, lie detector and leave him alone for a few and question him again..

    This is a sad and tragic accident and I hope I’m correct in calling it an accident, but the story isn’t popping with me. Was he trying to push her and the friend tried to stop him? I don’t know, I don’t want to be a negative and distrustful person regarding this accident.

    First my condolences to the Threatt family on their loss.. you are in my prayers. Secondly, I agree with the boyfriend, ‘what kind of glass was that that those two little women could go through the glass just like that?’ I asked that question to my mom when I first heard about this tragedy. I just don’t understand it at all. But I ask the good Lord that sit high and looks low to lift them up and cradle them in his bosom and give the the comfort that only he can, amen.

    I want to know the account of what happened from the other person involved before jumping to any conclusions.

    I still say this was very fishy that two women fell out a window, when there was no force involved..How do you go from tickling to falling out a glass window to your death? If it does not make sense, then it’s not true..Someone pushed this girl with force to her death..My condolences goes ou to this girl’s family..I still say check the backgrounds of all the people who were in this hotel room..

    This story is not clear to me.  There is a saying, “The story is not holding water.”  God bless the young woman’s soul. We pray she is in a better place.

      What about the story that is not clear — they fell out of the window — who’s at fault the hotel and the company and city inspectors that’s who– what they were doing hugging,wrestling, or just leaning on the window should never happen — keep that in mind when you think about what happen to them —

    As i read the comments we have about the people who fell out the window please keep on thing in mind — the window should have held up — and unless everyone in the room planned on pushing “both” women out the window it was most likely a defect product “the window was cheep and poorly made’ and instead of blaming the people in the room — blame the hotel the company the made the windows and the people who inspected the windows –

    no one should have to die a death so horrible because of poor structure of a building  I don’t care if they were drunk, playing around or anything else what happen to them could have happen to anyone of us due to poor workmen ship so keep that in mind when you seed your horrible comments out.
