Penn State Student Dies After Fall From Spanish Balcony

A Penn State senior studying abroad has died after reportedly falling from a balcony in Seville, Spain.

University spokesman L. Reidar Jensen said Spanish authorities were continuing to investigate the death of Lauren Bajorek, but that preliminary indications are her death early Saturday was an accident.

Bajorek was a senior finance major from York, Pennsylvania, said the university.

Bajorek was a finance major studying in Spain as part of an eight-week study abroad internship program.

Officials with Penn State's Student Affairs and Global Programs have been in contact with the student's family.

"We are all deeply saddened to learn of Lauren Bajorek's passing and offer our sincerest condolences to her family and friends... " said a statement from Penn State. "We send heartfelt sympathies to all whose lives were touched by Lauren."

The university said that counseling services are available to anyone who wants to talk about Bajorek's death.
