A female UC Berkeley student died after falling from a third-story balcony of an apartment on the 2700 block on Dwight Way just after midnight Sunday morning, as first reported by Berkeleyside.

Paramedics took the woman to Highland Hospital in Oakland after arriving at the scene, as she had sustained severe head trauma, but she did not survive, according to Berkeley Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Andrew Frankel.

The student’s family requested that The Daily Californian not publish her name because of privacy concerns.

The case is still under investigation by BPD.
