Dean Mike Whaley reports via email that the unnamed student is in critical condition at Bridgeport Hospital Burn Center. The family has requested that no further details, including the student’s name, be released. From a CTnow broadcast (below):
Middletown police are also saying they’re not ruling it’s an attempt at suicide; they are only saying there is nothing criminal about this case. Sources are telling us the student’s parents have been notified that she likely won’t be pulling through.
