Last night, a student fell from the 8th Floor of Wien Hall. Police responded shortly after and transported him quickly to St. Luke’s while he was in critical condition. Sources confirmed he was stable and breathing once he arrived at the hospital. An email from Cristen Kromm, Associate Dean of Residential Life, was sent to students late last night informing them of the accident. Kromm assured students that support is available for them through their RAs in their residence halls, or by going to CPS this morning. You can view her email as well as our tweet in regards to the incident last night below.

I am writing to let you know that earlier this evening, a male student was seriously injured due to a fall from an upper level of Wien Hall. The student has been taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital for medical attention, and his family has been notified.
We know that this has been a very difficult evening for many students. Staff have been assisting students throughout the evening at the hospital, in Wien Hall, and in Lerner Hall. We encourage you to reach out to the RA on-call in your building who can access additional support, if you are in need tonight, or to your advising deans or Counseling & Psychological Services (CPS) in the morning.
As your parents and family members may learn of this incident, please reach out to them to let them know you are okay.
Associate Dean of Residential Life
