College student from Seattle dies in Boston fall

The family of a college student who died in a fall in Boston while filming a school project says his funeral will be held back home in Seattle.

The 21-year-old Seattle man, Justin Amorratanasuchad, was filming on the roof of an off-campus apartment building Sunday when he fell five stories to his death. He reportedly had been walking backward with the camera when he lost his footing, stepped onto a gutter and fell into the alley.

Amorratanasuchad was a graduate of Ballard High School in Seattle majoring in film production at Emerson College where he was a junior.

The college told other students about the death in an email.
