Fraternities at St. John's University in New York City have been banned from inducting new recruits after the hazing of a Sigma Chi Upsilon pledge resulted in nine days of hospitalization – four of them on kidney dialysis.
The pledge's mother spoke to the NY Times about the incident.
The incident occurred on the Staten Island Campus of St. John's. The pledge's mother described how he was made to carry heavy objects while on his knees and stomped on while doing push-ups before being "pummeled." He son was taken to the emergency room on September 23rd.
A Sigma Chi Upsilon connected blog, Sanguine et Purpure, said that no arrests have been made, although police are investigating the incident. Sanguine et Purpure describes itself as "Unofficial, Unauthorized, Unfettered – A Balanced Blog for Sigma Phi Epsilon."
