Hazing gone wrong ends in death at FAMU

| No Comments

The drum major of Florida A&M University died after an alleged hazing went wrong on a bus ride home from a losing game in Orlando.

Robert Champion, 26, lay on the floor of the bus, not breathing, as students called 911 ABC reported.

The caller who made the 911 call never revealed why the drum major was so badly hurt. Police are staying silent also.

But, ABC reported that the University president has dismissed four students from FAMU, and 30 students were dismissed from the marching band.

Police are also investigating the hazing of an 18-year-old clarinet player in the FAMU marching band, who came home a month ago barely able to use her legs.

According to ABC, the band director, Julian White, has been fired and Florida's governor is pushing for more strict rules.
