Spring break is often a time for partying and having a great deal of fun, but for Indiana University football freshman Isaac Griffith, it has been a tragic one.

The redshirted freshman is currently in an induced coma after a swimming accident that happened Monday at around 6:30pm in Florida.

Griffith, who plays wide-receiver for the Hoosiers, is said to be in a critical condition after drinking and swimming with teammates at Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota.

A report states that the wide-out and his teammates Ty Smith and Nick Stoner, and a fourth person, Mitch McCune, had gone swimming whilst consuming alcohol.

It's understood that a current took Griffith away from shore and he began to go into severe distress.

McCune saved the wide-out's life though by bringing him back to shore and administering CPR.

Even though Griffith remains in a critical condition, his CAT scans are said to have provided some positive news.

Zach Osterman of Indy Star reported, "McCune pulled Griffith back to shore, according to the report, and administered CPR while 911 was called.

"The report states that Griffith was unconscious but had a pulse, and that his breathing was "short and sporadic."

"Griffith was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital. According to the report, his CAT scan results "came back normal, which is promising."
