Syracuse Fraternity Suspended: Hazing Incident Left Victim Frostbitten

By    |   Thursday, 05 Mar 2015 02:41 PM

A Syracuse University fraternity was suspended this week and two members arrested after an alleged hazing incident got a student's hand so frostbitten that he may lose four of his fingers.

On Monday, just after midnight, three Nu Alpha Phi pledges were reportedly taken outside into the 19-degree weather, with snow on the ground, to do “forced exercises,” according to NBC News.

The next day, one of the three went to the hospital with pain in his hands, which doctors said was frostbite, according to The Daily Orange. The student now faces the possibility of losing his ring and pinkie fingers on each hand.

Arrested on first-degree hazing charges were Nu Alpha Phi members Tae Kim, 19, and Jeffrey Yam, 21, NBC said.

The two pledges who were not injured are refusing to cooperate with authorities, The Daily Orange said. A search warrant was executed on the fraternity house Wednesday.

Kevin Quinn, Syracuse University’s senior vice president for public affairs, told The Orange that the university acted quickly to suspend the fraternity as soon as the hazing incident became apparent.

“The university is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy campus environment that rejects all forms of hazing and fosters respect for the dignity and rights of all our campus community members,” Quinn told the newspaper in an email.

Other hazing incidents across the country have caused severe injuries and even deaths, and the Internet community reacted strongly to the new report from Syracuse.
