Taylor Hubbard DEAD: GW Sophomore Dies After Fall From Dorm Window

George Washington University biomedical engineering sophomore Taylor Hubbard died Sunday after falling from fifth-floor dorm room window. He was 20.

The investigation into how Hubbard fell is ongoing. The GW Hatchet reports how his body was discovered:

Hubbard was found by a group of students coming back from a party early Saturday morning. Senior Jen Choi said she was walking back to South Hall around 4 a.m. when she and her friends found a male sprawled out on the grass in Guthridge Park.

"As we were walking along the way we saw this guy who was face up on the grass and we thought maybe he was just drunk and we kind of looked to see if he was ok," Choi said. "But then we realized he was erratically breathing and that his wrist was swollen and he had cuts on his arm, and then we realized we had to call 911 or EMeRG."

Hubbard, who hailed from Maryland, hoped to pursue medicine and friends remember him as a "happy, positive and outgoing person." In a statement, GW President Stephen Knapp said Hubbard was "a promising student and a beloved member of the George Washington Community."
