SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- About four hours before a Utah State University freshman died of alcohol poisoning, a fraternity member called the Utah Poison Control Center saying Michael Starks had "ingested a little over his limit in alcohol."
A transcript of the recorded call obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune also shows the caller declined to give Starks' name, said he was 21 years old instead of 18, and said the freshman was "pretty drunk" but still awake and alert.
The caller said he wanted information about alcohol poisoning and how best to treat the freshman.
The dispatcher said he should be taken to a hospital if he can't be woken up or if he aspirates vomit.
Starks, a pledge to Sigma Nu fraternity, died Nov. 21.
