PULLMAN — A Washington State University student is in critical condition after falling from the third-story fire escape of a fraternity house Saturday night, the Spokesman Review reports.

According to the Spokesman Review, emergency crews were called to the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house around 10 p.m. with reports that a 20-year-old man had fallen from the house and had obvious head injuries.

Crews took the student to Pullman Regional Hospital condition in critical condition. He was later taken to a hospital in Spokane.

It was unknown whether the fraternity house was holding a party Saturday night, the Spokesman reported. Officials, however, did say alcohol was involved in the incident.

Law enforcement agencies are investigating the fall.

In August, a 19-year-old student at the school fell out of a sorority house’s second-story window while trying to vomit.
