An ISU student fell 10 or more feet into a ravine and is listed in critical condition. The 22-year-old man fell into a ravine south of campus. No better description was given. An earlier story provides more details. The young man was walking with friends near Arbor Street and Sheldon Avenue around 2:00 a.m. and it's alleged he may have attempted a short cut where he fell. The young man is Jeremy Croghan. I'm surprised there are no warnings or that he would not see warnings assuming any existed. As a lawyer my first thought is sobriety. Were you drinking? What were you doing there? Why cut across this area? Was there a path? Should you have been there? Were there warning signs? Why would the owner anticipate you walking across his property? Should the owner have anticipated you being there?
