The University of Notre Dame outlined its findings this morning from a nearly six-month investigation of the Declan Sullivan tragedy. Here are the key points stressed in this conference:
- The weather was last checked by the ND staff at 2:46 PM ET on October 27th -- the eighth time they had checked the wind that day -- prior to practice
- The scissors lift blew over at 4:54 PM ET
- The wind gust that blew the scissors lift over was estimated as a 53 mph wind gust
A sad day for the Sullivan family and the Notre Dame family.
