NEW YORK (AP) _ Authorities say a woman is in critical condition after falling from the first floor of a Fordham University bell tower.

The New York Police Department says a 911 call came in around 3 a.m. Sunday.

When emergency responders arrived at the scene, they found the 22-year-old woman lying on the ground inside the tower with trauma to her head and body.

She was taken to the hospital.

Police say it appears a group of students were climbing stairs when the victim fell through a hole in one of the stairway landings.

The university is investigating how the students gained access to the tower, which an official says is normally locked.
