A Notre Dame student from the Chicago area has died after a tower used to tape football practice toppled.

The school says 20-year-old Declan Sullivan was on a hydraulic lift shooting video of the practice when the lift fell over Wednesday afternoon.

Sullivan was a junior from Long Grove.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says he was "a diligent student worker and had a tremendous personality."

The cause of the accident isn't known but winds in the area were gusting up to 51 miles per hour at the time.
