Nine first-year members of the Utrechtsch Studenten Corps and UVSV Student Union were injured during a ski trip to Risoul in France. Five students ended up in the hospital. Two people from outside the associations fell ill. The holiday is now cancelled.


The young men collapsed spontaneously, shivered violently, took turns laughing and crying, rolled their eyes, became nauseous and vomited, had panic attacks and suffered from short-term memory loss. They were, however, friendly.

A Utrechtsch Studenten Corps spokesperson, who did not want to say more, said the student unions still did not know what was the cause of the complaints. The Bohemian Birds tourism organization suspects that the travelers were drugged.
