West Virginia University has suspended a fraternity chapter and several students after a student fell while visiting at the fraternity house.

The university said 22-year-old senior finance major David Rusko of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, fell down stairs at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house on Saturday. WVU said in a news release that Rusko was left unconscious by the fall and was taken to a hospital.

The school said university police officers found that more than two hours passed between Rusko's fall and a call made by fraternity members to 911.

The university issued individual interim suspensions and placed the SAE chapter on interim suspension. The school said additional students may face disciplinary action.
