    A 21-year-old man fell from a 5th floor window while visiting friends at Temple University, according to a police source.

    A man visiting friends that attend Temple University fell from a window just four blocks from the heart of campus overnight Saturday, a police source confirmed to NBC10.

    The victim, a 21-year-old man, fell from a 5th floor window at 1825 N. 10th Street, a little after midnight, according to that source. He was rushed to Temple Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

    This fatal fall marks the second in just a year near Temple's campus. Last April, 19-year-old Ali Fausnaugh fell to her death from the roof of an off-campus row home while visiting her boyfriend, a student at the University.
     
    Following Fausnaugh's death Temple officials cancelled Spring Fling, an annual event that featured numerous events, music and parties because of excessive drinking among students.

    They said the event, which was originated to bring commuter students together, was no longer meeting the goals the school had set for it in the past.

    No word on whether or not Saturday night's fall had anything to do with on-campus events or if drinking was involved.
