MARCY, N.Y. -- Many questions left unanswered after a SUNY Polytechnic Institute student was critically injured and found in her dorm room days later.

University police and state police say there is no criminal involvement.

The student was taken to the hospital Monday night, after being found in her dorm room, with an unexplained head injury.

Law enforcement believe the student experienced a medical event that led to the injury on Saturday.

“Right now she is in critical condition, but as you can imagine things could change at any moment. We still want answers and we are still looking for those answers. I think the family understands that we don’t think that she was a victim of a crime at this point. Things could always change. But we wanted to give them the most up-to-date information that we have,” said State Police Public Information Officer Jack Keller. 

The student's name has not been released.
