Chicago-area UI student dies at Northwestern after fall in Rome
CHICAGO (AP) — A University of Iowa student from Glen Ellyn has died after being seriously injured earlier this year while studying abroad.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said 20-year-old Andrew Mogni died Sunday at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The university announced earlier this year he’d been hurt in a fall on January 14, shortly after arriving in Rome.
Medical Examiner’s Office spokesman Frank Shuftan says a cause of death won’t be released until Monday at the earliest.
Mogni was a third-year finance major from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, who was participating in a semester-long program at John Cabot University.
The university said initial police reports indicated the fall was an accident but authorities were investigating the possibility that Mogni was robbed.
The school said Mogni was treated in Rome until late March, when he was flown back to Illinois.
