A college freshman in California who was rushed to a hospital after attending a fraternity party last week has died, the school announced Monday.
The head of San Diego State University announced the death of Dylan Hernandez, 19, in a statement to students and parents.
“As a mother, nothing can replace the profound loss of a child, and the devastating heartbreak the family and their loved ones are experiencing,” the school’s president, Adela de la Torre, said in the message.
Hernandez was hospitalized early Thursday morning after the off-campus fraternity party. He died Sunday with his family by his side in the hospital, de la Torre said in her statement.
The school is investigating his death, but details about the circumstances surrounding it were not clear.
De la Torre suspended 14 fraternities after Hernandez was hospitalized, all of which are affiliated with the Interfraternity Council.
Hernandez had been pledging to Phi Gamma Delta before he died. The group was put on probation by the school “after being found in violation of regulations pertaining to alcohol at off-campus events.”
The San Diego police will investigate Hernandez’s death if it’s ruled a homicide by the city’s medical examiner.
