TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -
A Miller County woman is recovering after she fell through the ceiling of a building on Wednesday.
Texarkana, Arkansas firefighters, and police officers were dispatched to the Arkansas Department of Community Corrections probation and parole services after hearing reports of a person who fell through the ceiling.
Upon arrival, emergency crews found 28-year-old Heather Staggs injured from the fall.
According to a spokeswoman for the Arkansas Department of Community Corrections, Staggs had earlier been sentenced to an intensive probation program. After Staggs checked herself in, she made her way to a storage closet and used a desk to climb to the building's attic, where she eventually fell through.
The Probation and Parole Services building is a secured facility sharing the same building with a state prison.
Officials do not know why Staggs was in the ceiling.
