Officials at a central Pennsylvania college say a student collapsed in a dormitory and could not be revived.

Franklin & Marshall College officials say 20-year-old Eric Phillips was pronounced dead at a hospital early Sunday.

College spokeswoman Cass Cliatt tells the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era that police are investigating.

Cliatt says Phillips was hanging out with friends in a common area of the dorm when he collapsed. Students quickly called college security officers.

Phillips was a sophomore from Oakland, Calif. The Lancaster County coroner says an autopsy will be performed Monday morning.
