Drunken fall breaks the bank

The details are vague but police, ambulance and fire were called to Rutland Wednesday evening after a woman fell through a window.

RCMP on the scene tell Castanet that the woman, approximately in her 40s, was walking past the TD Bank in Plaza 33 on Hwy. 33 when she crashed through the bank window.

They say the woman was severely intoxicated and they do not know why or how she managed to fall through the way she did, completely shattering the window. 

Ambulance personnel were on the scene but the woman supposedly suffered no injuries. A RCMP constable on the scene said she was lucky given the size of the shards of glass.

The intoxicated woman fell through the glass just after 7 p.m. and caused quite the stir as multiple emergency personnel attended and crowded the strip mall.
