Early Morning Suicide at NYU

A male student committed suicide by jumping from a floor of New York University's Bobst Library early Tuesday morning, Gothamist reports. A student emailed the web site, saying, the "kid must have jumped from high judging from where he landed in the lobby. Couldn't tell his condition from what I saw. I was told by a cop on the scene that he didn't look good." NYU’s president John Sexton told the Washington Square News. "I just am learning the details of it, we always mourn when a terrific young person passes. We have to find out how and why, of course, and then work through it,” adding, "the first thing is to take care of the folks." There have been multiple suicide attempts from the library’s balconies in the past.
