Missouri S&T student dies after fall

ROLLA, Mo. (AP) — An engineering student at the Missouri University of Science and Technology has died of head injuries he suffered in a fall.

The Rolla Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/SU3RZt ) that police said Wednesday they believe the fall was accidental and alcohol-related.

Police say 23-year-old Andrew Menner, of Ellisville, fell and struck his head the night of Nov. 15. He was taken first to Phelps County Regional Medical Center and later to a hospital in St. Louis, where he died Tuesday.

The circumstances of the fall were not released.

Menner was the second member of the Sigma Nu fraternity at the university to die in less than a month. Twenty-one-year-old Aaron Cobb, a senior engineering major from Olathe (oh-LAY'-thuh), Kan., was killed in a car crash Nov. 9.
