Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - News -

RIVER­SIDE (AP) — The fam­ily of a univer­sity stu­dent who died in 2018 af­ter what they say was a haz­ing in­ci­dent has sued a fra­ter­nity they claim is re­spon­si­ble for his death. KABC TV re­ported.

The fam­ily of Tyler Hil­liard said that the 20-yearold was about to be­gin his ju­nior year at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side when he went through the pledg­ing process at the Al­pha

Phi Al­pha fra­ter­nity.

On Sept. 15, 2018, fra­ter­nity mem­bers took the pledges to Mount Ru­bidoux in River­side for a run. “Tyler was sub­jected to harm­ful, hu­mil­i­at­ing and life-threat­en­ing haz­ing rit­u­als that ended at Mount Roubidoux where he ap­par­ently col­lapsed and was taken by am­bu­lance to the hos­pi­tal where he died the fol­low­ing day,” at­tor­ney Toni Jaramilla said.
