A 22-year-old student who fell 40 feet from Fordham University's clock tower early Sunday morning has died.The school confirmed Sydney Paige Monfries, from Portland, Oregon, had died in a letter to students Sunday, just weeks before she was due to graduate, reports Daily Mail.
School President Joseph McShane wrote: 'It is with great sadness that I report that Sydney Monfries, a senior at Fordham College at Rose Hill, died today after sustaining a fall inside the Keating Clock tower in the early hours of the morning. 'Our hearts go out to Sydney's parents, and her family and friends-theirs is an unimaginable loss, and we share their grief.
'There are no words sufficient to describe the loss of someone so young and full of promise - and mere weeks from graduation. Fordham will confer a bachelor's degree upon Sydney posthumously, which we will present to her parents at the appropriate time.'
