Tragedy has struck south of the border during a spring break trip.
ASU freshman Aiden Nevarez died on a recent spring break trip to Mexico after an accidental fall. The sudden loss has left family and friends grieving, and at a time of extreme pain, the community is pulling together to bring his body home so he can be laid to rest.
Nevarez, 18 years old, was with a group of friends on a spring break trip in Cabo. The group of young men were looking to soak up a little sun and fun, with no one expecting the trips tragic turn.
According to the death certificate, Nevarez died from a fall and his death was ruled accidental. The death certificate does not note if he had drugs or alcohol in his system.
Friends with him described the area of the accident as a cement area with 20-foot drop on the other side. The wall was reportedly at knee height.
A GoFundMe has been set up and thousands of dollars have already been raised. The donated proceeds will be used to help bring Nevarez’ body home, and to help with expenses for his family during this time.
If you would like to help the family, this is the GoFundMe page. The group’s fraternity, which Nevarez was part of has plans to donate their philanthropy proceeds next month to the Nevarez family.
