"Students and people in general are pretty good at denying that they are at risk for whatever happened to someone else," he said. "So they can look at something like this and say ‘I’m OK because I would never do that.’

"However, they may be drinking heavily, or doing things like mixing alcohol with prescription meds that is putting them at serious risk," he said.

"It’s stupid, it’s an unfortunate situation," said Privett, of Sevierville. "I mean there’s partying, and then there’s other things."
