A 19-year-old student was killed during a disaster management training session at a college in Tamil Nadu's Coimbatore district, police said on Friday.
In a video that has gone viral, the victim, N. Logeshwari, is seen seated on the sunshade just below the second floor of the college building with a trainer standing next to her asking her to jump on Thursday evening.
A group of students were on the ground holding a net.
