A college town in eastern Pennsylvania has banned rooftop activities to keep students — and anybody else — from hanging out too far off the ground.
WFMZ-TV reports Kutztown borough council announced it will ban all rooftop activities, except for maintenance. The borough about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia is home to state-owned Kutztown University.
Police Chief Craig Summers says he's seen students hanging out on rooftops, which he says is extremely dangerous.
The borough's ban comes about a week after a Penn State student was electrocuted by a power line and fell from a roof in State College. The funeral for 21-year-old Shannon Mather is Friday.
