BC student dies on trip

A Bishop's University student has been killed and another injured after a fall in the Dominican Republic.

University officials say Ben Houtman, who was from Vancouver, died early Saturday morning.

His family says in a separate statement that Houtman was the victim of an accidental fall.

Houtman, 21, was part of a group of 30 students who had gone on a spring break trip that wasn't organized by the university.

He had been a student at the university since 2014, enrolled at the Williams School of Business.

The university says the other student involved in the fall has been hospitalized.

The school says its dean of student affairs has been dispatched to provide support to the family of the affected students and the other students abroad.
