Dartmouth College is mourning the death of a young man who was visiting a graduating student this week. The 20 year-old man, whose name is being withheld, drowned when he dropped into the water from a rope swing over the Connecticut River on Wednesday. The brothers were attending a party organized by the senior class. Dartmouth spokesman Justin Anderson says the College is saddened by the accident.
“And we are full of grief for his Dartmouth brother, who is experiencing deep sorrow when he really should be filled with great joy,” Anderson said.
Anderson says the victim did not attend Dartmouth. Support services are being offered to students coping with the tragedy.
