Declan Sullivan was filming a Notre Dame football practice from the lift in high winds that eventually toppled the structure. Sullivan, 20, died in the accident. Winds were reported at the time in the neighborhood of 51 miles per hour, and practice had been moved indoors the day before due to the heavy winds.
Indiana's Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) has concluded its investigation into the death of Declan Sullivan, a Notre Dame student videographer who was filming a football practice when the hydraulic lift he was standing on collapsed.
OHSA has announced that Notre Dame will be fined $77,500 for workplace safety violations. The Fighting Irish were hit with a total of six violations, including "knowingly exposing its employees to unsafe conditions," the OSHA statement read.
