Seven students died after falling into university building Bolivia

Near the Bolivian city of La Paz, seven students were killed after a fall from the fourth floor of a university building. Another five students were seriously injured.

The accident happened at the University of El Alto. Students had gathered on the fourth floor to enter an auditorium.

In a video it can be seen that some students push and pull into the crowd that originated in front of the entrance hall. Shortly thereafter, part of the railing goes down and a number of people fall down.

A student still manages to hold on to her fellow students. Note: the images can be perceived as shocking:

The Bolivian Interior Minister, Eduardo del Castillo, is investigating the accident at the university.
