Hydraulic Scissor Lift
The University of Notre Dame on Monday will release its six-month investigation into the death of a student killed when the hydraulic lift he was on fell over in high winds as he filmed football practice.
A moment of silence was observed and a prayer offered before Saturday’s game between Notre Dame and Tulsa in memory of Declan Sullivan, a 20-year-old student videographer who died when the tower from which he was filming practice from fell over.
Faculty, family and students at Carmel Catholic High School were mourning the loss Thursday of Declan Sullivan, a 2008 graduate who died Wednesday when the tower from which he was filming a Notre Dame football practice fell over.
Online posts by a Notre Dame student indicate he was terrified as he filmed football practice on a hydraulic lift on Wednesday. “Holy f—, this is terrifying,” he wrote. Minutes after posting his fears on Twitter and Facebook, the lift blew over in high winds, and he was killed.
