A Hong Kong student died Friday from injuries he sustained when he fell one floor in a parking garage while police were dispersing an anti-government demonstration.

The university student, 22-year-old Chow Tsz-lok, was the first student to die in months of pro-democracy demonstrations in the Chinese-ruled former British colony. Thousands of people, including police officers, have also been injured since the unrest started in June.
