A Milwaukee woman was in critical condition Friday afternoon following an apparent case of sleepwalking.
The woman fell out of her second-story window.
"She said she had a dream that our house was on fire, and she checked to see if it was OK. She tripped on her shoes and she fell out the window," the woman's sister, Courtney Bannister, said.
The 24-year-old suffered severe internal injuries after that 15-foot fall.
Sleep specialists say sleepwalking injuries affect about one-third of adults who sleepwalk.
"If your dream involves the environment around you, and that the fire you feel is real, you will open windows, doors, and go through them," Dr. Rose Franco said.

My question is this, if you live alone, how do you know you are sleepwalking?
