UPDATE JUNE 11, 10:40 A.M.: The man has been identified by the coroner's office. Check page 2 for more information.

A 25-year-old man died Tuesday evening after jumping off of a building at UC Irvine. He was unaffiliated with the campus, according to UC Irvine Spokesperson Cathy Lawhon.

According to early reports, the man jumped at approximately 4:15 p.m in the Social Science Plaza. Responders attempted to resuscitate the man but were unsuccessful. No ambulance was called.

Counseling Center staff, administrators, and faculty were on the scene to provide counseling and grief services nearly immediately.

So a week ago the Weekly runs an article about suicides and mental health services at UCI. A week later a young man with mental health issues and no known connection to UCI goes there and commits suicide, near locations mentioned in the Weekly article. 


Sure, it could be just a coincidence.

How many times has this happened on campus so far? I can recall this is the 3rd time but I know there is at least one more. Maybe they should start locking the doors that allow roof access.

Best wishes Maxwell, Next, A total stranger jumps to his death and the university must send out scores of grief counselors? Where were all these counselors when Maxwell made the decision to climb the stairs & jump?

Why does everybody go to UCI to commit suicide? My roommate goes there and a lot of kids watched that happen, gnarly shit. People are going to be selfish enough to kill themselves, then they need to do it somewhere where a whole bunch of people aren't going to get fucked up in the head by watching it happen.

@paullucas714 I'm guessing you ignored the picture with the outside stairs and walkways ...

@Dweezle The kid did not attend UCI therefore he did not have access to the university's counseling services.

@priscyluv @Dweezle #1 he was not a kid, a kid is a baby goat not a human being. This young man was not a child either, he was 25 years old. As far as counseling services go, I was speaking about counseling and mental health services in Orange County in general.
