Setback for student critically injured during brawl

Victim's setback

A Bloomsburg University student -- who was critically injured during a brawl that allegedly involved Kutztown  University football players -- has hit a setback on his road to recovery.

Jackie Lithgow is now suffering from an infection and fever, according to the family's blog.

He's now in the ICU of Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

The brawl broke out back in February when a group of Kutztown football players reportedly crashed a frat party.

Lithgow, of Carlisle, and Donald Hoover, of Robeson Township, Berks County, were taken to the hospital.

Hoover was released.

Kutztown football players Angel Cruz and Justin Wieder were charged in the fight.

Both cases are heading to trial.
