NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — According to lawsuit filed Thursday afternoon, a Central Connecticut State University student is accusing his former track coach of forcing him to drink blood.
Charles Ngetich came to CCSU on a scholarship from Kenya but is no longer at the university after what his lawyer describes as an awful initiation ritual by his track coach during his freshman year.
In the lawsuit, it is alleged that track coach George Kawecki told Ngetich that he would like to see him drink blood. Ngetich thought the coach was joking and told him no. However, two weeks later, Kawecki tried again, telling him that he saw a documentary about a Kenyan group that drinks blood for rituals.
The complaint states, “In the presence of several members of the team, coach Kawecki produced a cup of blood, told the plaintiff he was too thin, needed calcium, and demanded that the plaintiff drink it. This young man thought he had no option, and he drank the blood.” Full story.
