(LAFAYETTE)(AP) - An Ivy Tech Community College instructor has died after falling from a tower while teaching on the Lafayette campus.

Ivy Tech spokesman Tom McCool says 36-year-old Craig Porter was on a tower used for teaching wind turbine technology around noon Wednesday with students when he fell from the top to the ground.

McCool says classes were canceled on the campus for the rest of the day. He says counselors were made available to talk with students and employees.

It's not immediately known what caused the fall or how far Porter fell.
