  • A Fordham University student was critically injured in a fall from the clock tower in Keating Hall

Emergency workers arrived on the scene at 3:17am and attempted to carry her out of the tower on a stretcher, however the building's narrow stairway made it impossible to manoeuvre her.

The school said Monfries will get receive her bachelor's degree posthumously.

Access to the tower is restricted, a university spokeswoman told the Times.

University bosses are now investigating to find out how the group gained access to the tower.

Students confirmed it has become "a rite of passage" to climb the clock tower, touch the bell and take pictures before they graduate from the university.
