Senior student falls to her death at Fordham University

By: Jennifer Enriquez

This weekend at Fordham University in New York city, 22-year-old Sydney Monfries fell to her death after taking part in a 3:00 a.m. climb to the university’s bell tower to take snaps.  The autopsy revealed that she fell 40 feet striking her head.  Monfries was taken in critical condition to St. Barnabas Hospital where she was later pronounced dead at 3:00 a.m. “There are no words sufficient to describe the loss of someone so young and full of promise – and mere weeks from graduation. Our hearts go out to Sydney’s parents, and her family and friends – theirs is an unimaginable loss, and we share their grief,” stated Rev. Joseph M. McShane.  “Fordham will confer bachelor’s degree upon Sydney posthumously, which we will present to her parents at the appropriate time,” said McShane.  A senior later told Fox News that they were “just getting a better view of the city, I think they were posting on Instagram when it happened.”  Other parents quickly found out about the unfortunate incident and warned their kids to stay out of the bell tower!
