    A student death has led the University of Notre Dame to no longer use hydraulic lifts to film football practices, the Associated Press reports.

    On Oct. 27, Declan Sullivan, 20, of Long Grove, Ill. plunged to his death while filming a practice.

    The lift reportedly fell over in winds of up to 51 mph.

    On Tuesday, school officials announced the university will switch to a remote video system.
