Notre Dame to release report on student's death

Posted:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- The University of Notre Dame says it will release a report Monday on its internal investigation of the death of a student who was videotaping the football team from a hydraulic lift during a windstorm.

Last month, the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined Notre Dame $77,500, saying the school ignored safety standards that could have prevented the death of 20-year-old Declan Sullivan.

The South Bend school says president John I Jenkins will participate in Monday's announcement. He's to be joined by Notre Dame executive vice president John Affleck-Graves, who led the probe.

Other participants will be athletic director Jack Swarbrick, football coach Brian Kelly and two technical experts.

Winds were gusting to 53 mph on Oct. 27, 2010, when the Long Grove, Ill., junior was killed.
