State to announce findings in death of ND student

The state of Indiana will release Tuesday its findings of an investigation in the accident that resulted in the death of a former Notre Dame student in October.

The Indiana Department of Labor will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. at the Indiana Statehouse.

Commissioner Lori Torres will discuss the findings of a four-month investigation by the Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration that examined the death of 20-year-old Declan Sullivan.

Sullivan, a student videographer at Notre Dame, died when the hydraulic lift he was filming practice from toppled over Oct. 27. The National Weather Service reported wind gusts of up to 51 mph at the time.

The state looked into at whether federal and state workplace safety rules and industry standards might have been violated, including a federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration rule barring workers from using scaffolds during storms or high winds.

OSHA also reviewed whether Sullivan, a film and marketing student from Long Grove, Ill., was properly trained to use the lift.

Notre Dame announced Tuesday it would no longer use lifts to film practice, and is installing a remote camera system in the end zones of its outdoor football practice facility to record practices.
