NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a New York University student has plummeted from a dormitory roof in an apparent suicide.

The New York Post (https://bit.ly/1b0YcKs ) says the unidentified freshman was pronounced dead at Bellevue hospital around 3:20 a.m. Monday.

NYU said it was reporting “with great sorrow” that the freshman had been found in an interior courtyard. It said “the cause and nature of his death” are under investigation.

Spokesman John Beckman says NYU is offering crisis counseling for any students who may have been traumatized by the incident.

The school also is urging students to contact its 24/7 assistance program if they’re aware of someone who needs help.
