I am afraid that I have some devastating news for the George Washington community. Late last night, shortly before leaving for midnight mass in Chicago, I learned that evening law student Eric Fatla had a horrible accident while visiting with his family in Chicago. He reportedly fell four stories and suffered traumatic brain injury. The family is reaching out to his friends and asking for prayers. He is given less than a five percent chance of survival and the next two days are critical.
His father found him on the ground and did not see the fell. The club is reviewing videotapes to determine what happened.
I am in Chicago for Christmas and I will be speaking with his mother this morning. They have asked me to reach out to those how know Eric and this is one of the fastest ways that I know since many law students check the blog.
Please keep Eric in your thoughts and prayers today.
