Bishop's student dies in fall in Dominican Republic
A Bishop’s University student died when he fell from the fourth floor of a hotel in the Dominican Republic on Saturday.
22-year old Ben Houtman was killed instantly.
Another Bishop's student also fell and he remains in hospital recovering from head and leg injuries.
They were part of a larger group of students who travelled to the Carribean island last week.
Local police say the incident happened at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday but no other details are known.
The trip was not organized by Bishop's but a statement from the school says the dean of student affairs, Stine Linden-Andersen, has gone to the Dominican Republic to provide support for the students and family members.
