Students dialed 911 right away, and an officer from the Utah Tech Police Department showed up at the scene.
Following the arrival of medical first responders and St. George Police Department officers, lifesaving techniques were used, but Hall was declared dead at the spot.
Peyton Hall, 18, of South Jordan, was staying at Campus View Suites II with roommates and friends when he fell 55 feet from the fifth-floor balcony, according to interim police chief Ron Bridge.
The dorm is typically busy, he claimed. Others in the class heard or witnessed what happened when Hall fell into the courtyard in the middle of what he called a “horseshoe-shaped building.”
“As the student fell from the fifth story on the inside of the horseshoe, one of Utah Tech Police Department officers was actually on the south side, or the open side of the horseshoe, and quickly responded around to the other side of the building. He was there very, very quickly.”
Bridge referred to the death as a “tragic accident” and said he didn’t think there were any other contributing factors.
“My condolences go out to the parents.”
“We are so very sorry for their loss, and obviously to the friends and the family, and the impacted students here on campus.”
The university claims that Peyton was an “involved and loved student” in the statement.
“Peyton was an involved and loved student in good academic standing at Utah Tech University, and our sincere condolences go out to his family, friends, and loved ones during this tragic time.”
Ali Threet, the assistant vice president for student affairs at Utah Tech University and the dean of students, said on Sunday night that Hall, who probably just started school in August, was active on campus.
She reported that he frequently met with his peer coach, went to functions, and went to the Writing Center.
“He did have those good connections with friends and roommates and several instances of seeing his academic advisor and seeing his peer coach.”
Hall’s family has been contacted by Utah Tech.
According to Threet, the university’s heart goes out to his family and friends.
The Campus View Suites II dormitories included six-room units with communal living and cooking areas. Hall’s friends and roommates who were with him when he collapsed were supported, and according to Threet, a mobile crisis team was called and stayed at the dorm building all day.
On Monday, the crisis team intends to return to the residence.
“I definitely think that it will affect a large amount of the students in some capacity, but that’s why we want to make sure that all of the students know that the faculty and staff are here for them, that we have our counseling staff on call and ready to meet with students.”
Utah Tech Vice-President of Marketing and Communications Jordon Sharpe in a statement released this afternoon,
“The family was contacted and Utah Tech officials worked with the Southwest Behavioral Health Center mobile crisis team who arrived on the scene in the early morning to provide mental health support to students and others involved.”
Mental Health Support
The statement claims that university representatives are collaborating with the Southwest Behavioral Health Center mobile crisis team to offer students and other involved parties mental health support.
University mental health specialists, according to UTU, will be on hand at Campus View Suites II from December 4 to December 5 to offer support on the spot and to keep an eye on the situation.
Dr. Jordon Sharp, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Utah Tech said,
“We are setting up counseling services this morning at the Campus View Suites, which will also be available tomorrow to students and anyone that can use it.”
The front desk of Campus View Suites II is where students can make arrangements to meet with a mental health specialist. In addition, anyone can reach immediate mental health assistance by dialing 988.
