She was safely returned to the ground after being lifted out of one of the tower's windows and rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she was placed on life support in an "extremely critical" condition. "And they were like trying to get good views of the city", student Antonia Greene said.

Fordham University has not commented on the incident.

University bosses are now investigating to find out how the group gained access to the tower. "I think they were posting on Instagram when it happened".

Students said climbing the tower, touching the bell and taking photos of the sweeping views, were part of a senior-year "rite of passage", according to the paper.

Police say a Fordham University student was seriously injured after falling Sunday morning 140 feet from the school's iconic bell tower, according to multiple published reports.

Access to the tower is restricted, a university spokeswoman told the Times.

The Keating Hall clock tower is off limits to students at the university. They're unlocked at night when they're cleaning. However, a senior, Anne, who declined to give her last name, said that "the doors aren't always locked".

"I feel so bad", Greene added.

The budding journalist, who was due to graduate next month, had completed a string of internships at a news network, InStyle magazine and a public relations company. The university said they will confer a bachelor's degree upon Sydney posthumously, which will present to her parents at the appropriate time.

"There are no words sufficient to describe the loss of someone so young and full of promise - and mere weeks from graduation", university President Joseph M. McShane, said in a statement.
