An unconscious student was left in a hospital lobby with a Post-it note explaining to doctors his name, that he had apparently put back about 20 shots of tequila during a drinking competition and needed help.
The 19-year-old Arizona State University student was found early Saturday in a wheelchair in the emergency room lobby of St. Luke's Hospital, reports The Associated Press.
The student had passed out and started shaking and turning blue before his fraternity brothers dropped him at the hospital, police said.
The student, who has not been identified, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.47 percent, nearly six times the legal limit for driving.
He reportedly told police that he and his friends belonged to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, but the drinking competition was not an official fraternity-sponsored event and only involved a few friends.
Police said it was not likely that the friends would face any criminal charges.
