Two die in fall at University of Kentucky
This Tragic story struck me when it happened and I never could forget it. It was one of those stories I categorize as just happening out of nowhere, I think it worthy of the KY Files so here goes. It Happened in a UK dormitory in the early hours of May 3, 2002 when two Brothers ,University of Kentucky freshman Jeffrey Pfetzer, 19 and Matthew Rzepka, 22, of Bowling Green, Started to Wrestle and Horseplay in the Kirwan Tower Third floor Lounge area. According to a U.K. spokesperson the horseplay apparently went too far and ," They smacked against a plate glass window, the window gave out and the two fell three stories to the ground." Apparently the two were wrestling and had ahold of each other when they went through the glass.The Situation took place around 2:30 a.m. in full view of horrified witnesses . Students awakened by the commotion described the aftermath as complete Chaos with people yelling and freaking out. Pfetzer died on impact while Rzepka was later pronounced dead at the University of Kentucky Hospital .Both had died of head injuries. This Story smacks of Both Shock and stupidity.
