MEXICO CITY, Mexico – A Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints missionary has passed away after a bicycle crash in Mexico City, Friday.
In a news release from the Church, Elder Francisco Rene Lamadrid, 22, could not turn at the bottom of a steep hill because of slippery conditions and passed away from his injuries.
He was wearing a helmet when the crash happened, the Chruch said.
Elder Lamadrid was a member of the Mérida Mexico Itzimna Stake and had served in the Mexico Mexico City East Mission since March 2021, according to the Church.
“We send our love and condolences to Elder Lamadrid’s family and friends as well as the missionaries he has served alongside for the past 15 months. We pray they will each be sustained with the love of the Savior at this difficult time,” Church spokesman Sam Penrod said in the release.
