September 15, 2012
The 19-year-old student Tomas Saraví, from La Plata city, died in the United States where he had suffered a serious accident with the family who stayed.
The young man had come to the United States under a student exchange. The attorney for the Institute Manuel Belgrano de La Plata, Jorge Pasolo, reported that the boy “died last night at 23, after being in a coma drug”.
Saraví died in the intensive care unit of Froedtert Hospital, Minocqua, in Wisconsin, where he remained in critical condition for several days.
Jorge Pasolo explained, “The young man was donor and underwent an ablation because there are three recipients of their organs on hold.”
His parents Alfredo Saraví and Florencia Games traveled to Wisconsin, , immediately after learning of the accident.
Tomas was in the United States since early this year as part of an exchange student and was greeted by a family of Minocqua.
Last Saturday, the car he was traveling with his young hosts collided violently in the Great Lakes region.
Thomas suffered very serious injuries and remained in medically induced coma and connected to a ventilator until his death occurred.
The host mother of Thomas, a woman surnamed Chart, died instantly upon impact.
The accident occurred when they were traveling from the airport to Minocqua after Tom returned from Los Angeles where he had gone to visit an aunt and uncle who live there.
