19-year-old Aramando Villa was attending California State University-Northridge and was trying to get into the fraternity of the Pi Kappa Phi. On Tuesday they had a hiking trip to the Angeles National Forest and on that trip they apparently got stranded, ran out of water and Villa died later at the hospital. A forest ranger had found the stranded group and they rushed Villa to the hospital, but it was too late. The cause of death is currently being investigated.
In the mean time the university has ordered a “cease and desist” on all activities at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. The strange thing is thought that when Villa was found he was shoeless and his feet blistered. Also the main cause of death it seems at the moment may have been heat exhaustion and dehydration. Was this a case of “pledging” gone wrong or was it just a simple case of the elements getting the best of a young boy? Share this story and let us know what you think.
