DANVERS — A resident at the Hunt Nursing and Rehabilitation Center died after falling out of a second-floor window today around 3:40 p.m., according to the district attorney's office.
James Hussien, 45, of Peabody was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Carrie Kimball Monahan, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.
After an initial investigation, authorities do not suspect foul play. Monahan said authorities "aren't sure" yet about how Hussien fell to his death.
"(He) was discovered by a visitor coming into the building," Monahan said.
Shortly after Hussien was discovered, a call to emergency services was made and medical staff at the center rushed to assist.
The center's medical director, who was the first professional to arrive on the scene, pronounced the patient dead, according to a statement from the center's administrator, Peter Roberts.
"The Hunt Nursing and Rehabilitation Center staff, residents and families are deeply saddened by the tragic passing of this man who was immensely popular in the facility," Roberts wrote. "Our thoughts and prayers at this time are with his family and with the many residents and staff who loved his generous spirit and kindness."
Hussien's family has been notified of his death, Roberts said.
Monahan said a medical examiner would, over the next few days, determine the exact cause of death. She said initially that there had not been any witnesses to the fall.
Hunt Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is a long-term care and rehabilitation center on Lindall Street with about 120 beds in a "homelike setting," according to its website.
