A UC San Diego freshman who died when he fell out of the window of a campus dormitory in October had a blood alcohol level of 0.27, more than three times higher than the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle in California.

An autopsy by the San Diego County Medical Examiners Office also says that Aaron Fan, who was 18, tested “presumptive positive” for cannabinoids, substances found in the cannabis plant. But there was no determination as to whether he used marijuana in the hours or days before he died.

Fan’s death has been ruled an accident.

Campus authorities said that Fan fell out of an eighth floor bathroom window at Tioga Hall on October 22, while the university was celebrating homecoming. The accident occurred at about 11:44 p.m. Fan was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, where he was pronounced dead early the following day.

The accident occurred after a campus police officer entered the dorm room where Fan was located to investigate a noise complaint.

Fan enrolled at UCSD after graduating from Westview High School in the Torrey Highlands area of San Diego.
