Stone Foltz, a 20-year-old sophomore at Bowling Green State University, was fatally injured during an alleged hazing incident after being forced to drink large quantities of alcohol.

According to Foltz’s family, he is being kept alive so that his organs can be donated.

The alleged hazing incident took place at a Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE) event that was held off-campus, according to Newsweek.

“For now, Stone is still with us,” family attorney Sean Alto said. “The nature of the hazing incident is still being investigated, but I can tell you that it involved a large quantity of alcohol consumed in a very short period of time during a fraternity pledge event.”

The incident and event are being investigated.

“The International Fraternity is horrified and outraged by this incident,” PIKE said in a statement. “The fraternity has a zero-tolerance policy toward illegal activity, substance abuse, bullying and hazing of any kind.”

Bowling Green also addressed the alleged hazing incident in a statement on social media.

“This tragic incident has certainly impacted our students and community,” the statement read. “BGSU is committed to not just the student conduct and law enforcement investigations, but a full inquiry into each Greek chapter’s prevention and compliance responsibilities under University policies prohibiting hazing.”

“This morning, we began to meet with our student leaders to decide the short- and long-term future of fraternity and sorority life at BGSU. In the days to come, we will also be reviewing all other student organizations.”

Our deepest condolences go out to Foltz’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult and tragic time.
