A woman is suing the University of Southern California's chapter of Pi Kappa Phi after she suffered severe head injuries when a drone fell on her head at a party last October, according to The Daily Trojan.

Alina Pituch filed a lawsuit this week against the fraternity and Perfect Event Inc., the company that rented out the drone, for "negligence and premises liability." 

Pituch arrived at a glow party in the backyard of the fraternity house around 11 p.m. on Oct. 3, 2015. About 15 to 20 minutes after she arrived, "a heavy object fell on [her] head, causing her to stumble forward into a friend, who caught [her] before she fell down." After the incident, she began bleeding profusely and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

Pitch also alleges that she suffers from permanent scarring and an developed inability to focus on school work due to headaches.

Pi Kappa Phi President Kyle Wiest told the Daily Trojan "the fraternity does not comment on pending litigation." 

The lawsuit is ongoing.
