Ben Houtman, a fourth-year student in Bishop’s University’s Williams School of Business, was killed in an accidental fall while on a trip to the Dominican Republic last Friday. Although details of the accident are limited, a joint statement put out by the school and Houtman’s parents explains that the student had travelled with 30 other Bishop’s Students to the Hamaca Beach resort in Santo Domingo. "We are shattered and grieving the loss of our only son,” the student’s parents write in the statement. “It was an unfortunate accident that could have happened anytime, anywhere.” See full story in the Tuesday, March 6th edition of The Record.
