Otto Warmbier’s Story

Thank you Zachary Rogers, WKRC for hosting us to speak in the wake of Otto Warmbiers return home. We are honored to be featured in your piece, Depart Smart: What you should know before traveling abroad. 

Our hearts go out to Otto’s family and friends.

The New York post released a news article on Otto Warmbier – North Korea releases US student in a coma after a year 

An American student serving 15 years of hard labor in North Korea was evacuated from the rogue country Tuesday after being in a coma for more than a year amid reports he had been brutally beaten.

He was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years for subversion after he tearfully confessed he tried to swipe the banner from a restricted area of the Yanggakdo International Hotel as a trophy for a friend in the US.

Otto is an all too familiar story. Please share his story, take the Travel Safety quiz, Download the Travel Safety Checklist and queue up to become a certified Travel Safety hero. Your actions will save lives and prevent tragedies like Otto’s.
