Quaker school student loses a testicle in bizarre hazing


A Wilmington College student lost a testicle in a bizarre ritual involving nudity, according to Eric Owens.


“Things went horribly wrong for Lawrence, the affidavit says, when frat members began flicking the pledges with towels fashioned with knots at the ends for maximum pain infliction.
