One of many recent tragedies involving college students is the discovery of a dead American college student. Ohio State University student Henry Meacock attended there. The institution confirmed the student’s death, but the precise circumstances of when and how he passed away remain unknown.
The university is also directing students to the counseling center for support. OSU said in a statement (as reported by Yahoo)
“The Ohio State community has suffered a tragic loss, and we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Henry Meacock.”
Not all tragedies recorded as college students travel for spring break include Meacock’s passing. Another youngster who was airlifted from Mexico is receiving life-saving treatment at a hospital in Florida.
The University of Georgia senior Liza Burke visited Cabo San Lucas earlier this month to spend spring break with her buddies. Burke has a hereditary disorder that causes her brain to bleed. This issue existed before she traveled to Mexico.
Miami Beach, Florida, authorities enforced a curfew beginning Sunday night over spring break in response to two fatal shootings and noisy, disorderly crowds that police had trouble managing.
According to the city, the curfew will be in effect from Sunday at 11:59 p.m. to Monday at 6 a.m., with a possible extension to Thursday through March 27. The curfew mostly impacts South Beach, where spring breakers go out to party.
The decision was made due to “excessively huge and disorderly crowds” and two separate gunshots on Friday night and early Sunday, leaving two people dead. The city commission will meet on Monday to discuss potential new limitations for the following week.
