WMU Frat Suspended After Woman Falls From Balcony

Western Michigan University has suspended a fraternity where an 18-year-old woman was critically hurt in a fall from the second-story balcony.

Police officers who already were in the area clearing out a number of loud parties early Wednesday came across a number of people crowded around the teen on the pavement.

The Portland, Mich., resident was rushed to Bronson Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition with a fractured skull.

The university cited Sigma Pi fraternity, and authorities condemned the rented building where the members lived.

University Vice President Diane Anderson tells The Detroit News the group is barred from all activities while the school investigates.
