Several agencies respond to emergency calls from student witnesses.

The SU hill was abuzz Monday as students made their way to their first classes of the semester when a professor unexpectedly collapsed outside of Huntington Beard Crouse (HBC) Hall around 11:30 a.m.

Students who witnessed the episode immediately called 911, and within minutes, Syracuse city firefighters and campus emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene near the Quad.

A large crowd of students and professors gathered around, looking on in concerned silence as EMS team members administered CPR and worked vigorously to revive the fallen man.
