A Notre Dame student died Wednesday after the tower from which he was filming football practice fell over.
Declan Sullivan, a 20-year-old junior from Long Grove, Ill., was transported from the LaBar practice complex to a South Bend hospital, where he died.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Declan’s family and friends,” coach Brian Kelly said in a release. “Declan was a diligent student worker in our video department and had a tremendous personality and great sense of humor. … The Notre Dame football family will dearly miss him.”
