Scary WSU Fall Latest In Series

At the bottom of a 23-foot retaining wall, a young man lay in a pool of blood. The fall had broken every bone in his face. His teeth were chipped. He was barely conscious. A police officer called out to him, asking him his name. The body groaned, and slurred something that sounded like “Shawn.” His name wasn't Shawn. It was just minutes after midnight on Saturday, Sept. 10, and several officers who had responded to the fall feared it would end with a body bag. In the hours that followed, as medical staff worked to save the young man, an officer called the Whitman County coroner. The officer warned they might need an autopsy/Stephanie Schendel, Morrow News Service. More here. (Moscow-Pullman Daily News photo: Chad Heffelfinger, accident victim)

Question: Do you worry about the party scene on your kid's campus?
