Stone Foltz, a 20-year-old student of the Bowling Green State University, has died following what is believed to be a fraternity hazing incident.

After getting hazed at the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity, Foltz was hospitalized in the early hours of Friday and was later placed on life support.

Reports have it that Foltz was given a large amount of alcohol at an event organized by the fraternity before being dropped off at his apartment. 

Foltz was discovered by his roommates, who put a call through to 911. The 20-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where he later passed away.

Though officials are yet to release details about the amount of alcohol Foltz consumed, another student who was present at the event reportedly revealed that pledges are often made to drink about 40 shots before leaving.

Following the unfortunate incident, Bowling Green State University has stripped the school's chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity of its status as a student organization.

Similarly, the National Pi Kappa Alpha organization has revealed that it will take drastic actions against the Bowling Green State Chapter for Foltz.

Officials were, however, quickly informed while the shooter was whisked away to a juvenile facility.

To this effect, plans are currently in motion to permanently suspend the Bowling Green State University chapter of the Pi Kappa Alpha. All members of the group could also be expelled.

Following the tragic incident, Sean Alto, an attorney for Foltz's family, released a statement describing the 20-year-old as a beloved son, brother, and grandson to his loved ones.

Reportedly, Foltz's family has also decided to donate his organs to people who need them. According to Alto, this is their way of giving people a second chance at life.

In the wake of the tragic incident, a GoFundMe page has been opened by Foltz's family, with the money expected to be given to people who need it.

Foltz's death comes only a week after Adam Oakes, a Virginia Commonwealth University student, was found dead in a house off-campus following a hazing experience with the Delta Chi fraternity.

Relatedly, a 15-year-old high school student was left in a serious condition after he was shot by another student on their first day back at school. Officials were, however, quickly informed while the shooter was whisked away to a juvenile facility.
