Notre Dame Football: No One at Fault for Declan Sullivan's Death
The University of Notre Dame has released its in-house investigation of the death of Declan Sullivan, the Irish student who was taping football practice in a lift that toppled over in high winds.
The university said that "no one acted in disregard for safety" last year when the videographer fell to his death when the hydraulic lift collapsed.
Notre Dame noted a confluence of circumstances and factors, including:
- A "sudden and extraordinary" 53 mph burst of wind;
- Staff members' lack of knowledge regarding on-the-field wind speeds;
- Sullivan's lift was more susceptible to tipping than the two other lifts used that day;
- The lift's height at the time of the accident.
