The Boston Globe reported that Justin Amorratanasuchad, a 21-year-old film student at Emerson College, fell to his death while working on a school project on an apartment building’s rooftop. The college’s president, Jackie Liebergott, sent an email to students and faculty telling them that Amorratanasuchad died from injuries he sustained in Sunday morning’s fall from the four-story structure. According to a statement from the Boston Police Department, he was pronounced dead at the scene from what appeared to be an accidental fall.
How could something like this happen? Kevin Spates, a resident who lives in the building says access to the roof is supposed to be restricted but admitted that the lock had been taped over so that the door remained open. He added that the side Amorratanasuchad fell from has no railings. The owners could not be reached for comment.
Amorratanasuchad was a junior film production major from Seattle that worked as a student employee at the college’s editing lab. Liebergott said Emerson’s Counseling Center will host a gathering at the Campus Center Monday for those wish to talk about Amorratanasuchad’s death.
