The user, who goes by the name Julia, added: ‘The chair was left at the top of the stairs because she had to be physically carried to use the bathrooms. Which are just downstairs.
The outrage was immediate on social media and within hours, the university posted a statement on Twitter Thursday night in responses to the video.
Mercyhurst University learned late this afternoon of disturbing video showing one of our student-athletes pushing a vacant wheelchair down a flight of stairs at a local institution. The Student Conduct Office and the Police and Safety Department are investigating.
The school’s hockey season was over at the time of the accident, having finished eighth in their conference and not qualifying for the NCAA Tournament.
This isn’t the first time Briere has faced disciplinary issues on campus.
In 2019, Breyer and another player were “expelled” from the program at ASU “for violating team rules,” according to Walter Cronkite Sports Network.
Briere—who has received invitations in the past to the Flyers’ youth development camp—never played for the junior program, having gone through the NCAA’s process of ‘redshirting’, whereby collegiate athletes often do not play for a full season to extend them. eligibility.

He spent the rest of the school year playing minor hockey in Canada before transferring to Mercyhurst.
Briere moved from a huge public school in Arizona to Mercyhurst, a small program at a private Catholic college with an enrollment of 2,700 in Erie, Pennsylvania.
2021 interview at College Hockey News which got him a “second chance” went into what Brier felt were the reasons for his dismissal.
“I was just going out; I didn’t take hockey seriously. It wasn’t a bad thing, it was just a lack of commitment to hockey, I was more committed to having fun at school,” he said. “A lot of parties, that’s probably the best way to put it.”
He claimed that he had a lesson from his experience in Arizona that he had used in his new school.

GoFundMe has started and exceeded its goal of raising money for a new chair
It made me realize once you get to that level, it’s a job, right? “It’s not just something you can do for fun,” he said. “Obviously, you have to have fun while you’re doing it, I think that’s what keeps people going, but also knowing when and when not to do things.”
It’s just maturity in general. I honestly think it was a great lesson for me, it helped me become a more holistic hockey player and look at life and everything from a different perspective.
According to the Twitter user who posted the video, the victim who was in possession of the wheelchair allegedly “wishes to remain anonymous until she can take legal action.”
