Vanessa Clarke, University Of Bath Student, Dies After Falling Off Warehouse

Posted: Updated:

A University of Bath student died after falling off a warehouse roof on Saturday.

Vanessa Clarke, 22, fell over 20 ft. through the roof of a warehouse onto a concrete floor. Clarke's body was found at 4 a.m. on Saturday.

In a statement, the University of Bath confirmed Clarke's death and said the police were treating the incident as a "tragic accident."

The Daily Mail reported that a "source close to the investigation" speculated that the fall might have been the result of a drunken prank.

Clarke was a computer science major and a member of the University of Bath's cheerleading team, the Bath Jets.

Clarke is unfortunately not the only student to die tragically from falling. Last July, a Texas State student fell out of a dorm window at a party and died.
