MOSCOW, Idaho — A University of Idaho student was injured when he fell from the roof of a fraternity house.

Moscow Police Lt. Dave Lehmitz says Kurt Wrobel, 21, of California, suffered facial fractures and other injuries when he landed on concrete at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was hospitalized in Spokane.

Witnesses reported Wrobel climbed out of a window and was trying to open the window in a nearby locked room when he fell from the second story of the Alpha Tau Omega house.

Lehmitz says Wrobel had been drinking earlier in the evening at a party at another fraternity house.

Last month, a judge dismissed a civil lawsuit filed against the university by a former student who fell from a frat house window during a party three years ago and suffered debilitating injuries.
