The Clemson Tigers are preparing for the ACC Championship game in Charlotte on Saturday, but their entire school was rocked with a tragedy Tuesday afternoon. According to reports, a student was found dead at the team’s Memorial Stadium Tuesday afternoon.
According to Breaking 911, the student was identified as Michael Joseph Aaron, a 19-year-old from DeKalb, Georgia. Pickens County Sherrifs reported that Aaron had fallen more than 120 feet from the stands at Frank Howard Field.
There have been no reports of what caused the fall or why the student was at the stadium in the middle of the week.
Campus Sports would like to send our condolences to Clemson University and the family of the young man whose life was taken in this horrific tragedy.
