WEST HARTFORD — A fundraising page has been set up for a University of Hartford student who was seriously injured in a fall at a state park last week.

Friends set up a Gofundme page to help out with medical costs.

After falling,  Messing, who had been unconscious for an extended period of time after the fall, was flown by medical helicopter to a Hartford hospital with serious injuries.

A University of Hartford spokeswoman confirmed that Mersing attended the school and is scheduled to graduate this semester.
