Walt Whitman High School in Huntington Station

A student plunged from the third-floor window of his Long Island high school Thursday morning, and it’s unclear whether he fell or jumped.

The incident was reported shortly after 9 a.m. at Walt Whitman High School in Huntington Station. The male student was airlifted to Stony Brook Hospital, Newsday reported.

His condition was not immediately known, but a school official told Newsday he was stable and conscious.

The official, South Huntington School District Superintendent David P. Bennardo, said a probe is under way, and that it appears the classroom was unsupervised by a teacher at the time of the incident.
