(STMW) — A University of Iowa student from west suburban Glen Ellyn was seriously injured Wednesday when he fell in Rome while taking part in a study-abroad program.

Andrew Mogni, 20, suffered “serious injuries” in the early morning fall, according to a statement from the university.

The fall “is thought to be an accident, but police are investigating,” university officials said.

Counseling services would be provided to students in Rome and at the university’s Iowa City campus, officials said.
