Fall, medical condition blamed for Iona student's deathPosted: Updated:
A Iona College student?s death is being blamed on a fall and a pre-existing medical condition.
Nineteen-year-old Adam Lynch, of Stewart Manor, N.Y., was found dead in his dorm room by roommates Wednesday. The freshman had suffered from hemophilia and his death was apparently caused by a fall from a loft-style bed.
New Rochelle Police Captain Joseph Schaller said Lynch died of internal bleeding to his brain after the fall.
The college is offering counseling to students who are shaken up by Lynch?s death. There was also a memorial service for Lynch. ?Obviously you know what type of kid he is by how many people were there,? says sophomore John Viggiano.
Westchester County Medical Examiner?s office is still waiting for other lab tests to come back.
