A University student died after falling from the fourth storey of a building.
In Wolverhampton, West Midlands, the 20-year-old was tragically pronounced dead at the spot.
At around 6 a.m. this morning, emergency services were dispatched to Digs Chambers 51, a student residence near the University of Wolverhampton.
A female university student dies after falling from the fourth story of the university housing tower.
The woman, who has not been identified, was discovered in the road with fatal injuries.
Officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the 40-foot fall, but no foul play has been suspected.
“A woman has died after falling from a window at student accommodation,” a West Midlands Police spokeswoman stated.
“The 20-year-old was tragically pronounced dead at the scene.
“We’ve been working with staff at the University of Wolverhampton and our thoughts are with the woman’s family, friends, and the wider student community at this sad time.
“The death is not being treated as suspicious and will be referred to the coroner.”
A resident who lives in the block told the Express and Star: “I woke up and saw the police outside and sheeting over someone in the car park. It’s awful, I’ve heard who it was and she was really young, in her twenties.”
Professor Julia Clarke, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Wolverhampton, confirmed the woman was a student, the Express and Star reports.
She added: “The thoughts of the University community are with the student’s family and friends and we are providing support to our students and staff at this very sad time.”
