MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Three students are no longer enrolled at West Virginia University and 15 others have agreed to other disciplinary action after a student was injured in a fall down steps at a fraternity house.

The university announced the actions in a news release on Tuesday.

The statement said the actions against the students range from deferred suspension to probation. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house remains on interim suspension following the Nov. 10 incident.

According to WVU, David Rusko, a senior finance major, fell down steps and was knocked unconscious at the fraternity house where he was visiting after a football game. He remains hospitalized.

An investigation found two hours elapsed between the fall and when medical help was sought.

Morgantown police are conducting a separate investigation.
