A George Washington University student died after falling from a dormitory window early Saturday morning.

Twenty-year-old sophomore Taylor Hubbard fell out of a window from the fifth floor at Guthridge Hall.  A group of other students found the victim around 4 a.m. 
 
"As we looked closer we realized his breathing was very erratic, and we saw his wrist was very swollen and he was bleeding with scratches, and we decided, 'Oh wait, this is not right. We have to call someone,' " said GW student Jenn Choi.
 
Hubbard, from Maryland, was transported to a hospital, where he died.
 
Hubbard's death was announced Sunday by university president Steven Knapp during GW's commencement ceremony. A moment of silence was held.
 
Officials said Hubbard was not a resident of Guthridge Hall.
 
D.C. and campus police are still investigating the incident.
