A Penn State University freshman was found dead on a campus jobsite Sunday morning, according to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The student, Jack Crean of Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, was discovered on the jobsite at around 11 a.m., Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers told the paper. Crean was discovered at the jobsite for the university’s renovation and expansion of the HUB-Robeson Center, the school’s student union.
Powers told the paper, “official cause of death is unknown, but it appears he might have fallen or jumped from a crane inside the secured site.”
It’s unknown exactly how Crean gained access to the jobsite itself though access to the area is likely difficult to completely restrict since the student union has remained open during the renovation.
The student union renovation and addition project began in May 2013 and is scheduled to be completed in May 2015, according to the Penn State Student Affairs website.
