A Brooklyn woman is suing a Cornell University fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, for wrongful death claiming that her son don died in a hazing ritual.
According to the New York Post, George Desdunes died last February after allegedly being kidnapped and force-fed alcohol by his fraternity brothers in a hazing ritual. The incident happened when Desdunes had called his brothers looking for a ride home. His brothers arrived, but instead of taking Desdunes home, they abducted him, bound and blindfolded him, and began a hazing ritual testing Desdunes' knowledge of the fraternity.
It's claimed that every time Desdunes missed a question on the test, he was forced to drink alcohol. When his unresponsive body was found hours later dumped on a fraternity couch, his blood alcohol level was over five times the legal limit reports the Post.
