An assembly of students at the Public University of El Alto (UPEA) in Cochabamba, in Bolivia, ended in tragedy.

At least five students died and another three are seriously injured, when

a railing of the fourth floor of the Faculty gave way on Tuesday. 

Everything happened in the middle of an assembly of students, when after a tremendous agglomeration and a strong discussion with struggles of those who were in the place, a containment railing gave way and the young people fell into the void. 

Of the eight people who fell, due to the high impact,

three died on the spot

;

while two others (young people of 20 and 21 years old) died a few hours after being hospitalized, according to the local newspaper 'El Deber'.

Information that was ratified by the Police through the regional commander, Leonel Jiménez.

"Unfortunately we have to report that three of the students died as a result of the fall," the police officer certified.

According to the preliminary report, of

the eight fallen students, six are men and two are women.

One of the young women continues to be admitted

to the Hospital del Norte, in an intensive care room and the picture is quite complicated due to the large number of wounds she has on her body.
