Otto Warmbier has died, University of Cincinnati Medical Center announced Monday.
Warmbier, 22, died at 2:20 p.m. local time Monday, days after he was released from captivity in North Korea. He was surrounded by family members at the time of his death, hospital officials said.
In a statement released by the hospital, family members said Warmbier had been unable to speak, see or react to verbal commands since his return to Cincinnati June 13.
“He looked very uncomfortable — almost anguished,” family members said. “Although we would never hear his voice again, within a day the countenance of his face changed — he was at peace. He was home and we believe he could sense that.”
