Thousands of young men pledge fraternities each year, and at least one will die due to hazing.
Danny Santulli was a freshman at the University of Missouri in the fall of 2021 when he was at a pledging event for a fraternity and was taken to the hospital with a blood alcohol content six times the legal limit. He suffered severe brain damage, lost his eyesight, and can no longer walk, speak, or feed himself.

Santulli’s parents, Tom and Mary Pat, claim that no one from the fraternity has contacted them or apologized.
However, the fraternity brothers communicated about the tragic event between themselves in a group chat. Watch the video above to hear what they said.
As National Hazing Prevention Week begins, Dr. Phil shares stories that could save a life. On Tuesday’s episode, “Horror Hazing: Left Blind and Paralyzed,” hear from Santulli’s parents, who speak out in their first national interview and share surveillance video of what happened to their son during the hazing event. And on Wednesday, “Deadly Brotherhood: The Fight to Stop College Hazing,” hear from a family who lost their son to alcohol poisoning after a fraternity initiation event.
