Indian-American medical student falls to death in US

Vivek Subramani

New York, January 14

A promising 23-year-old Indian-American university medical student has plunged to his death while dangerously jumping between rooftops in Philadelphia, according to US media reports.

Vivek Subramani, a third-year student at Drexel College of Medicine, was found dead on the 1200 block of Buttonwood Street on Saturday, the police said.

The university said in a statement that Subramani fell from a balcony and was with two friends, also medical students, at the time of his fall.

However, the police’s version of the death contradicted the university’s explanation. According to the police, Subramani’s friends told them that they were jumping between the rooftops of their apartment building when the victim missed his mark and plummeted, hitting his head on the ground. They also admitted that they had been drinking earlier that night. — PTI
