A Baylor University freshman died Sunday morning at a local hospital after he fell during a dance rehearsal Saturday night and hit his head.
Baylor University spokeswoman Lori Fogleman said Kevin Signo was participating in a dance rehearsal Saturday night as part of a student organization when during a break in the practice he attempted a flip and struck his head.
He was taken to a local hospital where doctors said he broke his neck in the fall, Fogelman said.
Signo was a pre-biology major from Frisco, Texas Fogelman said.
He lived in Martin Hall and was involved in Baylor’s Filipino Student Association, a campus-wide e-mail said.
The association was practicing traditional dances at the time of the accident.
