Harvard student dies from off-campus fall

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A Harvard University student who fell from an off-campus building over the weekend has died.

Harvard officials say Andrew Sun died at a Boston hospital at about 4 a.m. Monday.

Sun was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with critical injuries after the fall Sunday morning.

In a message to students, interim Harvard College Dean Donald Pfister called Sun’s death a “tragic loss” and said “it is important that we all support Andrew’s family and friends, and that we support each other.”

The Harvard Crimson student newspaper reports that Sun was an economics major in the Class of 2016 originally from New Jersey. The newspaper said on its website that Sun’s parents and aunt were with him when he died.

Boston police confirmed they are investigating a fall from a building, but could not confirm it involved Sun.
