OSU To Study Parking Garage Safety After Two Falls In The Last Week

 Ohio State University President Michael Drake says the school has formed a task force to improve parking garage safety and examine mental health resources for students after two people jumped or fell from the Ohio Union South parking garage over the last week. 

The task force is expected to issue recommendations within the next two months. 35-year-old former student Kelly Dinlinger is hospitalized in critical condition after falling from the garage Sunday. 19-year-old student Daniel Birdsall died after falling last Thursday night. It's not clear if the falls were accidental or intentional.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
