Student falls to death at uOttawa

September 14, 2009

On Saturday morning, a male student, believed to be 20 years old, jumped to his death from a 15th-floor window at the Thompson Residence at the University of Ottawa. One witness says a firefighter was the first to come to the young man's aid and performed CPR, but was unable to revive him. uOttawa sent out an e-mail to students about the incident Saturday evening, and reminded them they could call for counselling. The university was offering counselling by Sunday. Ottawa Citizen
