WSU student falls from frat house window

The Associated Press

PULLMAN — Police in Pullman say a Washington State University student fell three stories from a fraternity house window and was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Police tell the Lewiston Tribune the 19-year-old man fell about 3 a.m. Friday at the Phi Kappa Tau house on California Street. Police say he was found in a basement window well, and that he was conscious and breathing.

It’s the second fraternity fall in a three-day span in the region. At the University of Idaho on Wednesday, 21-year-old Kurt Wrobel fell two stories from his fraternity house trying to get into a locked room through an outside window.

He was air-lifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Wash., for treatment of facial fractures and other injuries.
