Student, 22, who fell 60ft from flat window while putting up Xmas decorations 'died after hospital refused treatment' | The Sun
A YOUNG nursing student died after suffering a deadly fall from her fourth-floor apartment in Jordan.
Dina Khalil, 22, was from the Israeli town of Jadeidi-Makr and was studying in Amman.
Dina was putting up festive Christmas decorations in her flat when she fell from her flat's fourth-story window.
Her family claims the hospital she was sent to refused to provide her with medical care as Dina was unable to pay enormous medical costs at the hospital.
In response, Dina's friends launched a crowdsourcing campaign to raise the funds for her treatment.
Her condition continued to worsen as she waited for treatment.
