TEMPE, Ariz. -

We have new information about the grave situation an ASU student was in after drinking too much at a party.

The student, who was left at an emergency room by friends, has been identified as 20-year-old Aidan Mohr. He's not of legal age to drink.

According to police, Mohr's blood alcohol level was five times the legal limit. He drank somewhere around 30 ounces of tequila in a few hours' time.

Police are concerned too many students are drinking at a dangerous, even deadly pace. What happened over the weekend is reminiscent of another case that had a much worse ending.

Aidan Mohr's smile lights up his Facebook page, but according to police, last Saturday afternoon, the young man came dangerously close to never smiling again.

"He began to vomit, he was beginning to have difficulty breathing, his eyes rolled in the back of his head," says Tempe Police Sgt. Mike Pooley.

Sgt. Mike Pooley says the 20-year-old did 20 shots of tequila during a drinking contest and was eventually dropped off by his frat brothers at the ER at Tempe Saint Luke's Hospital. His name was written on a Post-It. His blood alcohol concentration was .471%.

"In severe cases when the blood alcohol level gets too extreme they can go into coma," says ER nurse Janet Backers, director of the ER.

Backers did not treat Mohr, but warns of the dangers associated with alcohol poisoning and binge drinking -- a behavior that could lead to death.

It was last December that police believe ASU student Jack Culolias drowned in Tempe Town Lake after a night of heavy drinking with fraternity brothers -- the same frat police say Mohr belongs to. Images of Sigma Alpha Epsilon are also on his Facebook page.

"This underage drinking, this over consumption is a problem it's something that needs to be addressed and we're doing everything we can to address this issue," says Sgt. Mike Pooley.

Tempe Police are not filing any charges at this point.

Aidan was still in the hospital as of Sunday. Even though he was in extremely critical condition, police tell us he is expected to make a full recovery.
