GWU student dies in fall from dorm window
A George Washington University student has died after falling from a dormitory window.
University president Steven Knapp announced the student's death during commencement on Sunday, and graduates observed a moment of silence.
Taylor Hubbard of Lexington City, Md., fell out of a window at Guthridge Hall, a high-rise building in the 2100 block of F Street NW, around 4 a.m. Saturday. Officials say the 20-year-old sophomore was taken to George Washington University Hospital.
D.C. police described the fall as accidental. A police official said it appeared that the fall was from a fifth-floor window. D.C. police and campus police are investigating.
In a statement to the university on Saturday, GWU President Steven Knapp extended sympathy to the student’s family and friends and asked that they and the student be kept in “our thoughts and prayers.”
