STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Eight Penn State University students have been charged with giving alcohol to a cheerleader who fell out a fifth-story apartment window.

Paige Raque, 19, survived the 39-foot fall in October but suffered a brain injury and broken pelvis from the off-campus residence. The women are charged with providing alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor. A school spokeswoman said the university is aware of the charges and is conducting its own review.

The school said several cheerleaders have been removed from the team but declined to specify why, citing the ongoing investigation, the Centre Daily Times of State College reported Tuesday.

Raque has left the school and is recovering at her family's Kentucky home.
