ROME (WTAQ) - A Marquette University student who was studying abroad has died, after falling off a ledge along a river in Rome Italy.

In a campus e-mail, the president of the Milwaukee school said Andrew Carr was walking with friends when he lost his balance and fell.

According to a Italian news media, Carr had spent a night in the city with friends when he lost his balance along the river around 2 a.m.

University president Scott Pilarz says Marquette is working with John Cabot University to support Carr’s friends and roommates in Rome.  On campus, counselors are available for those needing help in coping with the tragedy.

Carr was to be a junior this fall, majoring in operations-and-supply chain management.
