Before mounting the tower, Sullivan had tweeted that, “Gusts of wind up to 60mph today will be fun at work… guess I’ve lived long enough”. That is pretty much what happened because Sullivan did not survive another moment when the gusty winds struck and floored the tower he was working on.

However he still revealed that the university would conduct an investigation into the accident to determine if warnings were not heeded.
