   An 18-year-old Indiana University student was in serious condition Monday at Bloomington Hospital after police said he jumped from the third floor of a parking garage.
   Following the early morning incident on Sunday, police said Eric Cameron was on a ventilator and had bleeding on the brain.
   Cameron, a freshman from Cincinnati, Ohio, is a member of the Indiana University wrestling team, according to Jeff Keag, associate media relations director for IU Athletics.
   Cameron was injured after he apparently jumped off the third floor of a downtown parking garage at 300 N. Walnut St., according to a Bloomington police report.
   The incident began about 3:30 a.m., when a 22-year-old woman was leaving a nearby bar with friends and a man and his friends followed her out of the bar and began harassing them, the report said.
   When the 22-year-old told the man to leave, he punched her in the eye, the report said. A male friend with her then punched the man, the report said.
   The 22-year-old and her friends got into a vehicle, and a man later identified as Cameron — who police said was with the group who’d followed her from the bar — punched out the rear window of the vehicle, the report said.
   At that point, a police car appeared on the scene and Cameron began running and jumped over the wall of the third floor of the parking garage, the report said.
   The officer said he ran to the edge to check on the man, saw he wasn’t moving on the ground below and called an ambulance, the report said. Other officers rendered aid as well, the report said.
   The 22-year-old woman suffered two chipped teeth, a loose tooth and a contusion on her right cheek during the incident, the report said.
   The other men believed to have been with Cameron have not yet been located. The investigation into the incident is continuing.
