Blacksburg Police received the call just after 10 o-clock last night. They say more than 50 people had gathered inside an apartment on Harrell Street to listen to live bands. During the show, some people in the crowd were slam dancing. That pushed the victims into a window that broke out. They fell approximately 20 feet and landed on a concrete patio. 19 year old Daniel James Martin of Emerald Isle, North Carolina later died at Montgomery Regional Hospital. 21 year old James Michael Kontkanen of Manassas Park was airlifted to Roanoke Memorial Hospital where he is in critical condition. The other four victims were taken to Montgomery Regional Hospital.

But hold the phone--
A federal judge's decision last week means the registry won't take effect until the White House does some serious legal maneuvering.
More than 50- million Americans have put their names on the "Do Not Call" list, and last week Congress moved quickly to overrule another judge who tried to block it.
