An Appalachian State student has died after suffering a heat stroke last month while participating in a marathon event. Cadet Christopher Hasbrouck of Pittsboro, a member of Appalachian State University Army ROTC and a sophomore computer science major died Wednesday, May 2 from complications related to a heat stroke he suffered on April 21. The university release says that Cadet Hasbrouck was participating in the annual Mountain Man Memorial March in Gatlinburg, Tenn., running in the half marathon event when he collapsed. He was taken to LeConte Medical Center in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., then evacuated to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tenn. where he died.
“The university community and especially the ROTC Department are very saddened by the loss of Cadet Hasbrouck,” said Lt. Col David Cox, professor of military science at Appalachian. “The entire Appalachian family grieves with Cadet Hasbrouck’s family, and is ready to provide all the assistance to them we can.”
A memorial book will be available for signing at Plemmons Student Union on campus today. The memorial book will be sent to Cadet Hasbrouck’s family as an expression of concern and care for them.
