A Brunel student, believed to be a first year Biomedical student, fell to his death yesterday after falling out of his seventh-floor window of his Bishop Complex dorm room.
Witnesses say that books were thrown out of the student’s window before the victim himself followed. It is believed that the student’s two roommates were home at the time of the incident, which happened around lunchtime.
The tragic news was confirmed via the university’s official Twitter account, where they offered counselling for any students who were affected by what happened:
