A Kansas University freshman who was seriously injured at a Phi Gamma Delta party has been transferred to a Denver area rehabilitation clinic.
Matt Fritzie, a freshman from Stilwell, has been admitted to Craig Hospital, a clinic that only admits patients with serious spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries, a hospital spokesman confirmed Thursday.
Fritzie has been at the clinic since Sept. 27. Typically, patients stay at the rehabilitation clinic for two or three months, said Kenny Hosack, the hospital’s spokesman.
Hosack said the Fritzie family had opted not to release information about his condition. Sources have told the Journal-World that Fritzie remains paralyzed from the chest down after he was injured diving into a shallow, makeshift pool at a fraternity party last month.
The fraternity was recently placed on probation by the university for hazing violations.
