Berkeley Balcony Tragedy: Students Buried in Dublin

The father of an Irish student who died in the Berkeley balcony tragedy has urged the US authorities to ensure a similar tragedy could never happen again.
As the burials took place on Wednesday in Dublin of two more victims, it emerged that the Californian town’s district attorney was considering a fresh investigation into the accident.
The district attorney’s office in Berkeley said it “will begin looking at the matter” of its own inquiry but stressed that no formal investigation had been launched.
Berkeley authorities confirmed that their investigation found the number of people on the balcony during the party was not a factor in its collapse. Dry rot was the only contributing factor, according to Eric Angstadt, director of the city’s planning and development department.
