A Daemen College student died late Friday night after falling from a balcony at the Pearl Street Grill and Brewery.

In a statement released Saturday morning by Daemen officials, the victim was identified as 24-year-old Thomas Krickovich of Lancaster. He was a graduate student in the college's physicians assistant studies program.
