NYU Student Leaps to Death at Bobst Library


At 4:30 this morning, a student reportedly leaped from one of the high interior balconies at NYU’s Bobst Library. He was pronounced dead this morning by police. This is the latest in a long string of suicides at the school, which resulted in higher panels being built on the library balconies a few years ago. “We always mourn when a terrific young person passes,” University president John Sexton told the Washington Square News. “We have to find out how and why, of course, and then work through it.” [WSN, Gothamist]
