Patient receives medical care after jumping off Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital second floor

A man was treated for severe injuries after reports of a patient jumping off the second floor of a Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital building Monday evening. 

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies and hospital staff responded to the 23800 block of McBean Parkway sometime around 6:30 p.m. for attempted suicide, according to Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Shirley Miller. 

“The call went out that a patient adult male jumped out of a second-story window, and the patient did survive the fall,” she said. “The extent of the patient’s injuries are unknown.” 

Deputies and hospital security worked together to secure the scene. 


Soon after the response, crews were seen working on replacing the second-floor window, which was about 10 feet off the ground.
