SPRING TWP., Pa. - A Penn State student from Berks County said he urged his fraternity brothers to call 911 after he saw Timothy Piazza unconscious at a party in February.
Kordel Davis, who attended Exeter Township Senior High School, said he was made to feel like he was overreacting.
Piazza died from traumatic brain injury after a falling multiple times while intoxicated in a hazing ritual at the Beta Theta Pi house in February.
Police said students waited nearly 12 hours to call 911.
In an interview on ABC's Good Morning America, Davis said he suggested to his fraternity brothers that Piazza had a concussion. He told ABC's Robin Roberts the other students told him to shut up and even pushed him against a wall.
"I didn't know what to do after that. I felt kind of useless," Davis said.
He added that the students made him feel like he was overreacting and told him they had dealt with these types of situations before. Davis said he had only been a part of the fraternity for a few months.
"When everyone is telling me that I'm wrong, it just, it was just hard to, like, think," he added.
69 News reached out to Davis but did not hear back.
Davis is not facing charges. All 18 students who are facing charges are out on bail.
