COLUMBUS (WCMH) – An Ohio State University student is dead after falling from a parking garage on Lane Avenue.  It is the third time its happened this year.

The last time this happened, the university said it was going to look into changes to prevent it from happening again.  This is the third time this year someone fell from a garage on OSU’s campus. University officials say student Joshua Song fell off of the Lane Avenue garage Tuesday morning.

Back in April, two people fell off the Ohio Union South garage just days apart. University officials released this statement at that time, which read in part:

“The university will immediately review these incidents and all campus parking garages in effort to identify any potential changes that could prevent future tragedies,”.

University officials said since then, President Michael Drake commissioned the suicide and mental health task force to create prevention efforts and more mental health services for students.

No officials from the university made themselves available for an on-camera interview.
