MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin speaks at a news conference held after Lt. Bruce Britt, of the Columbia Fire Department, was fatally injured in a fall from a second-story walkway early Saturday morning at University Village apartments. "We immediately brought in a structure engineering firm to examine the affected facility first and next all those like it in University Village," Loftin said. "With advice from the firm we've done appropriate actions to guarantee that the other buildings in that facility (University Village) are in fact safe."
