NYU med student hangs herself in dorm room

A distraught NYU medical student hanged herself inside a dorm, according to police sources Tuesday.

The body of the student was found hanging by a rope inside Vilcek Hall at 334 E. 26th St. — an NYU-owned dorm — just before 11 a.m. Tuesday, sources said.
