Non-student rushed to hospital at Fun Day event

Posted by Brendan James

At approximately 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, a non-student was carried off of the South Green's Fun Day event and rushed into an ambulance. At the moment Campus Safety has said that the young woman is a non-student and possibly a Skidmore graduate, though this has not yet been confirmed.

The young woman was unconscious as the EMTs carried her on a stretcher into an ambulance just outside Case Center. Campus Safety Director Lawrence Britt disclosed that the woman is indeed a non-student, but did not disclose her name or whether she is a Skidmore graduate or former student.

Britt later said he could not confirm anything about the woman's identity, nor her current condition or reason for hospitalization, as Campus Safety does not keep track of medical conditions after the person has left campus, due to the Hippocratic oath.

"It's all confidential, so all we know is that she was transported to the hospital," Britt said. "Nobody can discuss somebody's medical information anymore."
