Despite the State Department’s warnings about violence and the recommendation to avoid traveling to Mexico, an American college student was discovered deceased while on spring break in the country.
Reports indicate that earlier this week, Henry Meacock, a student at Ohio State University, was on a visit to Mexico for his spring break, the Hill reported.
Although the exact details of when, where, and how Meacock died have not been disclosed, the university has verified his passing.
“The Ohio State community has suffered a tragic loss, and we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Henry Meacock,” OSU said in a statement.
The university is also directing students to the counseling center for support, as reported by the Hill.
Thousands of American students are still traveling to Mexico for spring break this year. Another student is currently on life support at a Florida hospital after being airlifted out of Mexico.
