BIG RAPIDS, Mich. – The Ferris State University student who was found lying unconscious in the snow last month has been upgraded to serious condition.

Nicholas Suttles was taken to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids on Feb. 15 for hypothermia and an irregular heartbeat.  

The investigation uncovered that Suttles may have been spotted drinking at a party near the 300 block of Morrison. Officials believe he tried to walk home at about 12:30 a.m. to his on-campus housing when he fell into the ditch.
