Notre Dame Student Fatality

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Associated Press - Indiana's workplace safety agency said Thursday it was investigating the death of a Notre Dame student who was videotaping football practice when the tower he was in fell over.

Declan Sullivan, a 20-year-old junior from Long Grove, Ill., died Wednesday at a South Bend hospital after being transported from the LaBar practice complex. The National Weather Service said winds in the area were gusting to 51 mph at the time when the hydraulic scissor lift, which can be lowered or raised depending on needs, toppled. The football team had practiced indoors on Tuesday because of the blustery conditions caused by a fierce storm that swept through the region.
