MOSCOW, Idaho -

A University of Idaho student was hospitalized in serious condition after falling two stories from his fraternity house while trying to get into a locked room through an outside window.

Moscow police said Kurt Wrobel, 21, was on a roof section of the Alpha Tau Omega house at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday when he slipped and fell to the concrete below. Police Chief David Duke said Wrobel likely slipped on frost on the roof, but noted that he had also been drinking alcohol.

Wrobel was air-lifted to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Wash., for treatment of facial fractures and other injuries.
