— North Carolina State University police are investigating a bizarre accident on campus. A graduate student apparently fell from a classroom building Wednesday afternoon, but officials admit it is possible he jumped or was pushed.

Officers found the post-doctoral student on the first balcony of Dabney Hall. Witnesses say he had been on the fifth floor.

The 37-year old is in critical condition. His family has asked that his identity not be revealed.
