After drinking vodka in an igloo, an intoxicated male was found vomiting in a trashcan at 1:45 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 28 in the Norsworthy Hall lobby. Visibly shivering, he told officers that he had been drinking Smirnoff in the snow on the Green Lane Fields with his girlfriend, but came inside of Norsworthy to find help, since the female was unable to walk on her own, reports said.

Officers subsequently dispatched to Green Lane Fields for the unresponsive female, who was found in the igloo. Upon arrival, officers could hear her shouting, “Who is there?”

According to reports, her legs were surrounded by several inches of snow. She was able to speak but exhibited signs of hypothermia. She also smelled of alcohol. Lions EMS arrived on the scene and placed an emergency blanket around her before assisting her out of the snow-covered field. Pennington Road EMS assumed care and transported her to Capital Health’s Mercer Campus.

Both received summonses for underage drinking.
