    An 18-year-old man was taken to the hospital after he fell four stories from a MIT fraternity house.

    A man fell four stories through a skylight on the roof of an MIT fraternity house on Wednesday, officials said.

    The 18-year-old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to Boston Fire Department officials. The man fell through the skylight shortly after 11:30 p.m. ET and landed on the first floor staircase of the building located near Kenmore Square, a busy area at the heart of Boston's nightlife, according to Boston.com.

    The building is home to the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, but officials have not confirmed whether the victim is a student at the school or a resident of the house, according to Boston.com.

    The man was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital, officials said.
