‘Grotesque actions’ in Penn State fraternity hazing death

The lawyer for the family of a student who died after falling down stairs during a fraternity initiation has called the group’s actions “grotesque”.

Timothy Piazza, 19, died in February after he became drunk during a “pledge” event for a fraternity, which is a social club for male students.

Mr Piazza, who was left unconscious for hours, suffered internal injuries before he died in hospital.

Prosecutors charged 18 students at Penn State University over his death.

The charges came after months of a grand jury investigation, which included video from surveillance cameras, testimony and phone records from Mr Piazza’s final hours inside the fraternity house.
