LOUISVILLE — A Kentucky teen who fell five stories out of an apartment window near Penn State University has recovered enough to go home.
The Courier-Journal reported that doctors said they expect Paige Raque, 19, to be released on Wednesday from Frazier Rehab Institute in Louisville, where she has been recovering since Nov. 19.
Raque, who is a cheerleader at Penn State, fell from the window of an off-campus apartment on Oct. 13 during a party. She suffered brain trauma and broke her pelvis.
"The whole thing has been a challenge, and every day I have to push through it," Raque told reporters Tuesday.

Raque said she doesn't remember falling from the window. Her parents didn't address the circumstances, but focused on her recovery.
Raque said her next goal is to walk without a walker, and in the fall, she wants to return to Penn State.
