A Fordham University student who climbed the campus’ landmark bell tower Sunday to snap photos of the New York City skyline has died after she accidentally fell, the university said.

Sydney Monfries, a 22-year-old senior, was taking part in a 3 a.m. climb when she fell through an opening on the first landing of the tower, plummeted 40 feet and struck her head, the New York Post reported. Her condition had been listed as critical at a hospital in the Bronx not far from the Fordham campus, but on Sunday evening, the university’s president announced her death in an email to students.

The article goes on to state the following:

Students said climbing the tower, touching the bell and taking photos of the sweeping views were part of a senior-year “rite of passage,” according to the paper.

“I heard they were just getting a better view of the city,” a senior told the paper. “I think they were posting on Instagram when it happened.”
