The teens tried to spend time on the balcony of the apartment more than once during the night. One person attending the party said the following about the incident, according to News Oxy: "I don’t know if she slipped or it was him pushing forward that took them both over, it just happened so quickly. I just can’t get the image out of my head. I thought it would be better today, but it’s not. I don’t know if what I saw will ever go away."

One resident from a nearby building spoke out about the tragic accident. Samson Oguntayo said the following: "You see people on the balcony doing all sorts of things and I just felt it was one of those things and in a moment they will probably go back inside.
