An 18-year-old student was killed Saturday after a tubing accident at a Resident Student Association (RSA) Conference at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, N.H.

Adrienne Devino, a freshman communications major, died at Speare Hospital in Plymouth, N.H. after hitting a tree and suffering injuries to her chest, torso and side, said Northeastern Director of Communications Fred McGrail. Members of RSA were the first to reach Devino and notified authorities, he said.

“The Northeastern community is deeply saddened by the death of Adrienne Devino,” McGrail said. ” The community extends our heartfelt symphathy to Adrienne’s family and to her many friends.”

About 50 students returned from the weekend RSA trip today and met with counselors and staff at University Health and Counseling Services, McGrail said. Counselors also met with residents from Devino’s floor in Stetson East and are available to all students who need assistance, he said.
