Cries could be heard around Campustown in Ames at approximately 1:30 a.m. on August 26, 2012 as a body was seen falling 73 feet from a fifth-story ledge at Legacy Towers Apartments. Christian McKee, 19-year-old engineering student, was lying lifeless on the soft dirt at a construction site when EMT's arrived quickly and well-prepared.

McKee was quickly transported to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines by air ambulance.
