Waco: Life Back To Normal In Dorm Drenched In RC Helicopter Mishap

WACO (January 23, 2013)—Twenty-six Baylor students who were displaced by a deluge earlier this month after a radio-controlled helicopter activated fire suppression sprinklers in the university’s North Village residential hall are settling back in.

Life returned to normal in the building on Tuesday, a university spokeswoman confirmed.

Water from the sprinklers damaged five suites in the building as it flowed from the second floor to the first after the system was activated on the first day of classes last week.

The cleanup took about a week.

The building is home to 254 residents and houses students participating in the school’s Engineering and Computer Science Living-Learning Center.

It was built on the site occupied from 1924 to 2003 by the Second Baptist Missionary Church.
