A Bowling Green State University student is in critical condition after an alleged hazing incident involving alcohol.
The student has been identified as Stone Foltz, family attorney Sean Alto told ABC News.
“We extend our deepest and sincere sympathy to the student’s family and friends and all of those affected by this tragic loss,” the organization said. That statement was later updated to remove any reference to the student’s death.
In response to the initial statement, Alto told ABC News, “It’s insensitive and inappropriate to put out a statement that he has passed away when he hasn’t.
The info is still coming out, just wait and gather the facts. It’s horrible to do this in advance of the family. They are solely focused on their son, their brother, their grandson.”
The Delta Beta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha at BGSU has been placed on administrative suspension following the incident, per the international fraternity.
“As more details are confirmed, we will also pursue permanent suspension of Delta Beta Chapter as well as expulsion of all chapter members from the International Fraternity,” the organization said.
Students and staff are encouraged to report any hazing activities to the Office of the Dean of Students at 419-372-2843, BGSU Police at 419-372-2346, the Hazing Hotline at 419-372-HAZE(4293) or through BGSU’s See It. Hear It. Report It. service.
Falcon Media will continue to report updates as we gather information.
