Fordham senior is killed after falling from clock tower


Sydney Monfries, who was a senior at the university, went to the Keating Hall clock tower with friends around 3 a.m. to get a better view of the city, according to police.She fell through an opening in a landing of the tower`s staircase and tumbled down the inside of the structure, an FDNY source said. Monfries had to be removed through a window because the spiral staircase inside the tower was too narrow for the stretcher.She was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in serious condition but died later Sunday.
