SYNDEY, Neb. (AP) — A western Nebraska community college is planning a memorial service for two international students who died at its aviation maintenance building.
Western Nebraska Community College in Sydney said the service will be Saturday for 21-year-old Yemin An, of Seoul, South Korea, and 24-year-old Zhaoxin Chen, of Xi’an, China. They died April 1 while working on an airplane engine inside the facility. Both were sophomores in the school's aviation maintenance technician program.
The school has not provided details about how the students died. A memorial fund has been established to support aviation students and to establish a memorial scholarship.
