Fordham student dies falling from clock tower while taking a picture
NEW YORK β€” A Fordham University journalism student fell from the iconic campus clock tower while trying to get some shots of the city. According to police, 22-year-old Sydney Monfries and her friends snuck into the Keating Clock Tower around 3 a.m. on Sunday and were planning on climbing to the top. According to the New York Times, they scrambled up the steep staircase of the granite bell tower to get a view of the Bronx at nightβ€”and of course to send a Snapchat video. Unfortunately, Monfries fell through an opening in a landing, and plummeted down the inside of the clock bell tower one a few weeks before her graduation. According to the university, she was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she succumbed to her wounds on Sunday night. The police found the senior unconscious inside the tower at around 3 a.m., with trauma to her head and neck. According to the New York Times, the tower is off limits, but that has not stopped students from clambering to the top to catch a view. The school said it is investigating how the students gained access to the tower.
