Inspectional Services Visits MIT Fraternity After 18-Year-Old Hurt In Fall

View Comments

BOSTON (CBS) – Two city inspectors paid a visit to an MIT fraternity house near Kenmore Square Tuesday, two days after an 18-year-old woman was hurt in a fall there.

The unidentified woman fell from a third floor window at Lambda Chi Alpha on Bay State Road during a party there late Sunday night. There’s no official word on her condition.

An MIT spokesperson told WBZ-TV she is not affiliated with the college.

The inspectors spent about 15 minutes looking at the outside of the building Tuesday, according to WBZ-TV’s David Robichaud, before leaving and filing their report.

Robichaud said both men also had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to answer the doorbell at the fraternity.

In September 2013, Phi Sigma Kappa at MIT was issued a license premise violation after an 18-year-old pledge fell four stories through a rooftop skylight.

After that incident, Boston Inspectional Services imposed a ban on fraternity and sorority events where the house occupancy exceeds the number of residents of that house.
