A female student at Fordham University in the Bronx is in serious condition after falling from the school's bell tower in Keating Hall.
A Fordham University student was critically injured Sunday after falling from a clock tower, according to a statement from the NY university.
The Jesuit university says Sydney Monfries was injured in a fall inside the iconic Keating Hall clock tower around 3am, the Fordham Ram reports. "And they were like trying to get good views of the city", student Antonia Greene told CBS New York.
Monfries had been climbing the tower with a group of fellow seniors when she tripped on debris on the tower's spiral staircase and plunged more than 12 metres, reportedly smashing the back of her head open.
Some students said seniors break into the tower as a kind of a rite of passage. During the event, seniors climb the tower, touch the bell and take photo outside one of the top windows.
"Access to that tower is always locked", he said. But there is no bell in the tower, the school said.
Other clips on her Snapchat reportedly showed Monfries' friends stumbling through the darkness using their phones as flashlights to see before sitting on the tower's perch. But some said they have never heard of being allowed inside the tower.
People began posting on her Facebook page on Sunday, mourning the loss and offering their condolences to her family, who flew in from Portland, Ore.
