The final investigation into the death of a student videographer who died after a 40-foot-high hydraulic lift he was atop blew over in a 53 mph gust during a University of Notre Dame football practice ended Monday without anyone involved being faulted or punished.
The 20-year-old Notre Dame student who was killed when the hydraulic lift he was on fell over as he filmed the football team on a windy day had expressed displeasure about practice being held outside, according to a state report released Tuesday.
The family of the Notre Dame student who died filming a Fighting Irish football practice when a hydraulic lift fell over last October is pleased the university is installing remote-controlled cameras to prevent a similar tragedy.
Workplace safety officials on Thursday were investigating the death of a Notre Dame student who was videotaping football practice when the tower he was in toppled as high wind gusts swept through Indiana.
Workplace safety officials on Thursday were investigating the death of a Notre Dame student who was videotaping football practice when the lift tower where he was taping toppled as high wind gusts swept through Indiana.
Notre Dame's athletic director says there was an "extraordinary burst of wind" on the football field before he heard a tower crash to the ground, killing a student who was videotaping practice.
Notre Dame's football team will play their game against Tulsa on Saturday. But the team will wear decals on their helmets to honor a student who died while videotaping football practice.
"There can be no better way to remember Declan than to help others avoid future tragedies," Sullivan's uncle, Mike Miley, wrote by e-mail.
Miley and Notre Dame both said the amount of money Notre Dame was contributing to the memorial was private matter.
