Man falls four stories through skylight at MIT frat
An 18-year-old man survived a four-story fall through a skylight at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology fraternity late Wednesday evening.
The man was on the roof of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity on Commonwealth Avenue in Kenmore Square when he fell, plunging four stories down and landing on the first floor staircase, the Boston Globe reported.
The teen was rushed to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. His injuries were not life-threatening, according to the Globe.
The fire department did not specify whether the man is a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, or if he is a student at MIT.
In 2008, Robert Wells, 22, died after falling off the roof of Delta Upsilon, his MIT fraternity on Beacon Street. There have been several deadly falls involving Boston college students in recent years.
