Andrew Sun a sophomore at Harvard College

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Harvard University student died early Monday morning after jumping from an off-campus building Sunday, the university said.

Andrew Sun, a sophomore at Harvard College, jumped from a building that is not on the Harvard campus in downtown Boston early Sunday morning and suffered extremely serious injuries.

Sun had been hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he underwent surgery.

In an interview with The Harvard Crimson Pforzheimer Co-House Masters Anne Harrington said that, “Very sadly, from all we understand at this point, this was not an accident.”

Officer Rachel McGuire, of the Boston Police Department, confirmed that the incident occurred at 240 Atlantic Ave. near the New England Aquarium in the Seaport District of Boston, but said the department would not disclose further information.

In a message to students, interim Harvard College Dean Donald Pfister called Sun’s death a “tragic loss” and said “it is important that we all support Andrew’s family and friends, and that we support each other.”

Sun was an economics major in the Class of 2016 originally from New Jersey. The newspaper said on its website that Sun’s parents and aunt were with him when he died.
