(WTNH) — UConn officials have confirmed two students are recovering after being taken to the hospital Tuesday evening.

A spokesperson for the University of Connecticut says emergency crews were called to a Northwest complex dorm around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday due to a call of a person who had fallen from a third-floor window.

Authorities arrived to the scene and discovered one person on the ground below the window while another person in the room was in need of medical assistance.

The two students were brought to Windham Hospital, and the person who had fallen was transferred to Hartford Hospital for additional evaluation.

The spokesperson of university says the student who fell from the window remains in Hartford Hospital where he is being evaluated and is stable. The other student was treated overnight at Windham Hospital and was released Wednesday morning.

The University has placed the UConn chapter of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity on interim suspension Wednesday as part of the investigation. The suspension will remain until the issue is resolved.

The incident remains under investigation.
