University of Arizona freshman Michael Evan Anderson accidently fell to his death from a roof-top structure on the Colonia de La Paz dormitory early Friday morning, according to University of Arizona Public Information Officer Filbert P. Barrera.

The 911 caller witnessed Anderson, 19, and another unnamed student scaling a 20-foot tower on the three-story hall on Highland Avenue around 3:55 a.m., according to the press release. Reportedly, emergency responders from the Tucson Fire Department attempted resuscitation.

UAPD reports indicate that the fall was accidental, but the investigation is ongoing.
