from our church's website

At approximately 7:30 p.m. last night, Keri Shryock, 23, a member of the Crossroads community, Xavier University student and cast member from the Awaited Christmas show, fell from a suspended position during the performance. She was attended to by emergency medical personnel as quickly as possible, and was then transferred to University Hospital for medical care.

We are deeply saddened to report that Ms. Shryock passed away this morning. Our prayers and heartfelt sympathies go out to her family during this incredibly difficult time.


  1. Oh this is horrible.

    I feel a closeness to it simply because I'm an XU graduate.

    Thank you for sharing this. You were there when it happened? Are you ok? This would be difficult for me to handle, I think...

  2. She fell from a rope? What was she doing on a rope?

    I'm so sorry she didn't recover!
