Student collapses, dies at S.F. State

A 33-year-old male student at San Francisco State University died suddenly on Tuesday after witnesses saw him stagger and fall walking between buildings.

The unidentified student was pronounced dead at Seton Medical Center in Daly City at 10:29 a.m., after witnesses say he collapsed between the library and the Franciscan Building on campus, according to a school press release.

San Francisco police officers, who were riding through the area participating in police bicycle training, were flagged down, according to the press release. The officers gave aid and called university police and the San Francisco Fire Department.

The student was transported by ambulance to Seton at 10:05 a.m. and was pronounced dead less than 30 minutes later.

The student had not been identified by press time. The exact cause of his death was unknown, and an examination is scheduled for today, Deputy Coroner Richard Vetterli said.

San Francisco State has roughly 30,000 students, a university spokeswoman said.
