So for the last two days when I’m coming home from work- the street has been blocked off by police activity-
Yesterday, a 23 year old undergrad at Penn tried to commit suicide- she stood on the roof of the Fresh Grocer on the corner of 40th and Walnut and the police and fire departments were on the scene.
Thankfully- she stepped down from the ledge and was taken to the hospital, hope she is alright.
Today a fire broke out on 41st and Walnut and spread up an electrical pole causing power to go off for a couple of residences. This was the second time that power has been lost for those people in the last week!
Whats going on? Is PECO just not ready for the return of all these Penn students?
