THE FIRST OF the seven people injured when a balcony collapsed in Berkeley, California claiming the lives of six Irish students, has left hospital.

RTÉ reports that Sean Fahey, 21, from Rathmines in Dublin, will fly home to Dublin in the coming days.

The other six students remain in hospital, but all are reported to be making improvements. Jack Halpin and Conor Flynn are both said to be in a fair condition, while Niall Muray and Clodagh Cogley are reported to be doing well, despite serious injuries.
