A student at Newham's Fordham University died Sunday after a campus clock failure, officials said.
The student, Sydney Monfries, 22, had the tour at Keating Hall with other students around 3 a. M.r. When they were on a ground, the authorities and school administrators got it.
Monfries died later in a hospital, the school said Sunday in a note to students.
The New York Police Department said they and other students had dressed a set of stairs when they landed through a hole, NBC New York reports.
Emergency responses were later found on their ground with trauma to their head and neck, according to the station.
In a letter to students, Fordham University President Joseph M. McShane said Monfries graduated weeks of graduation with her bachelor's degree.
"There are no words enough to describe the loss of one as young and full of promise," he said, adding that Fordham would perform his posthumously.
According to Monfries Facebook profile, she was a photo editor in InStyle and a former news intern at KGW, a NBC launch in Portland, Oregon.
The school said this research how to get the students access to the tour.
In 2013, a school party told the Fordham Ram that the tower was "more dangerous" and therefore "off limits" to pupils.
