DENNISON, Ill. (AP) - An 18-year-old Indiana State University freshman drowned after apparently falling from a boat into a small pond during a fraternity event in Illinois.

WTHI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2eOho6I ) Tuesday that autopsy results on Yiorgo Karnezis of Munster, Indiana, are consistent with an accidental drowning. Toxicology results will take another two to six weeks.

The Clark County, Illinois, sheriff’s department responded early Sunday and said the victim was pronounced dead at a hospital after he was pulled from a pond.

The school has said that Karnezis died during a Sigma Chi fraternity social event in the rural community of Dennison, Illinois.

The television station reports that Indiana State has confirmed that all operations of the Sigma Chi Fraternity have been suspended as protocol while officials investigate the incident.
