A 19 year old Washington State University (WSU) male student is in Pullman Regional Hospital with unknown injuries after he fell from a three story roof at the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity house early Sunday morning.
We reported a couple of weeks ago about a female student who suffered head injuries after she fell two stories from a fire escape at the Theta Xi Fraternity house at WSU.
There have been three serious falls at University of Washington (UW) fraternity houses this year: In May, a 20-year-old student was hospitalized after falling from the roof of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. In June, Kevin MacDonald a 21-year-old junior died after falling from a third-floor window at the Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. In July, a fraternity member broke his back in a fall at the Theta Chi fraternity house.
One wonders if the Universities and the Fraternities are working together to prevent these tragic accidents from occurring.
