Clemson University student dies after falling off roof

A college student in South Carolina died early Sunday morning after falling off a roof, officials said.

The Clemson City Police Department told FOX Carolina the incident happened around 12:45 a.m. at a home on Greenville Highway, where officials were called after reports of someone falling off a roof.

The 20-year-old man, identified as Thomas H. Few, was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

In a statement, Clemson University said Few was a junior construction science and management major from Greenville.

“Thomas was a valuable member of the Clemson Family, and we are deeply saddened by his passing,” Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students L. Christopher Miller said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”

Police told FOX Carolina they do not suspect found play but they’re investigating the death due to the victim being under the age of 21. Authorities believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the incident.
