Ohio college student hospitalized after fall on camp ropes course

CHAGRIN FALLS, OH (AP) — Officials say a college student attending a retreat at a suburban Cleveland camp fell on an elevated ropes course, became entangled and is hospitalized with unspecified injuries.

Baldwin Wallace University said in a statement Tuesday that freshman Brittney Bash, of New Richmond, is in serious, but stable, condition. She was hurt Monday during a retreat meant to build camaraderie among students in the university’s honors program.

Hiram House Camp in Chagrin Falls says in a statement that it prioritizes safety and cooperated with emergency responders who took the student to a hospital.

The school has canceled the remaining days of the retreat. Administrators say they’re keeping the student and her family in their thoughts and prayers.
