Comatose US student released by North Korea dies in hospital

Otto Warmbier, an American student held in North Korea for 17 months and recently released with severe neurological trauma following months spent in a coma, has passed away.

“Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today,” his family said in a statement on Monday afternoon.

Warmbier passed away at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Ohio at 2:20 pm local time, the family said.

That is so sad and such a tragic situation yet not surprising.
Hopefully parents won't permit their kids to travel there any more.
Any school/college/university that sponsors trips to NK should lose any state/federal funding that they may receive.
The US Govt has been advising its citizens not to travel there for exactly the reasons that ended this young man's life.

I think we should ban any and all travel of Americans to N. Korea. There is no earthly reason to go there, they are barbaric maniacs.

The N. Koreans threw him into a hard labor camp where God knows what happened to this young man....all because he swiped a POSTER off a wall as a souvenir.

Sick, sick government there.

I think most decent people of the world would know this,but aparently some don't get the message guys like Otto who get caught up in the fake propaganda tourist traps set up through China, and other idiots like Denese Rodman or whatever her name is just continue to use it as a vehicle for personal fame.

But if that's what it takes do it.

RE: Comatose US student released by North Korea dies in hospital
so he's alive (coma) for many months in NK, comes to U.S. hospital and dies within a day or two? either NK has really good medical facilities or obamacare didn't want to pay (or he had no insurance, which is also a quick death).

North Korea is a human rights nightmare, but the UN and the human rights pimps never confronts the issue. China and Iran are complicit.

I thought he was with other students from his school in Cincinnati and it was a school trip?
It was a Chinese tour company that he/they? went through.

snip

" He had planned to study abroad in his third year of college in China and heard about Chinese travel companies offering trips to North Korea. His parents were OK with it.

"Otto's a young, thrill-seeking, great kid who was going to be in that part of the world for a college experience," Fred Warmbier explained.

"Young Pioneer Tours described itself as providing "budget tours to destinations your mother would rather you stayed away from." They also included Iran, Iraq and former Soviet countries."

"He booked a five-day tour for late December 2015 and was in the process of leaving on Jan. 2 2016, to return to China when he was detained.


The U.S. State Department warns against travel to North Korea. While nearly all Americans who have been there have left without incident, visitors can be suddenly seized and face lengthy incarceration for what might seem to them to be minor infractions. A state-run news agency released a short, grainy video with a shadowy, unrecognizable figure that purported to show Warmbier taking the banner down from the wall of his hotel.

There have been critics at home of Americans who venture into the unfriendly country, leaving themselves open to becoming pawns. Ohioan Jeffrey Fowle was detained in 2014 when he intentionally left a Bible in a night club. Fowle was freed after six months; he said he was kept isolated most of the time but not physically abused. He and others freed from North Korea have said they were coached and coerced into giving a confession there.

A British member of the Young Pioneer tour group who was Warmbier's Pyongyang hotel roommate, Danny Gratton, told The Washington Post last week that he never heard or saw any hint that Warmbier planned or did anything wrong. He called him mature and very polite.

Warmbier was abruptly pulled out of the airport security line, Gratton said. He didn't resist or seem scared, he recalled, and gave Gratton a half-smile as he was led away.

"He was just a young lad who wanted a bit of adventure," Gratton told The Post. "Every once in a while they single out someone to make a point, and this was just Otto's turn. It's so sick and warped and unnecessary and evil."

Warmbier's father has accused the tour company of helping lure Americans to North Korea. The company has claimed Warmbier was the first to be arrested of the 7,000 people it had taken to North Korea."
