Woman Dies Falling From Nursing Home Window

Authorities say an 88-year-old woman who had been in a Gastonia nursing home for a few days and wanted to get out has died after falling from a second-story window.

Police said employees at Morningside of Gastonia were looking for Nellie Holland around 10:15 p.m. Sunday night when they found her outside the building. Paramedics say she died at the scene.

Investigators say Holland had been at the home for only a few days and told people she wanted to get out.

A spokesman for Morningside says the facility is cooperating with the investigation and providing support to the family. He says medical privacy laws prevent him from talking about Holland.
