  • Police said the 22-year-old had gone to the tower with friends about 3am

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 New York Police Department said Sydney went to the campus clock tower with her friends at around 3am on Sunday to get a view of the skyline.

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.

McShane invited the Fordham community to a mass for Monfries at 7 p.m.in the University Church. However, a senior, Anne, who declined to give her last name, said that "the doors aren't always locked". She fell 40 feet through the inside of the tower and struck her head on the ground.

He said Ms Monfries and her friends left the establishment an hour or two before it closed at 4am.

Sydney Paige Monfries, 22, from Portland, Oregon, fell from a bell tower as she attempted to take photos of the NY skyline.

The budding journalist, who was due to graduate next month, had completed a string of internships at a news network, InStyle magazine and a public relations company.

USA media reported emergency services struggled to rescue gravely injured Ms Monfries from the building after they realised it wasn't possible to carry her via stretcher down the staircase.

The student was taken to a local Bronx hospital in serious condition, according to NBC. "Theirs is an unimaginable loss, and we share their grief".
