Students Involved in Tragic Accident

This is an emergency update.


On May 6th, 2017, seven DIS students were boating on a personal excursion in the Copenhagen Harbor, where they were hit by a high-speed jet ski. Tragically, two DIS students were killed as a result of the accident. Their families and universities have been notified. Five other DIS students were injured. They have been treated for injuries and are released from the hospital. The Copenhagen police are actively engaged in the investigation.

This incident is incredibly difficult. DIS is a strong community and the ties to these students involved in the accident are broad and deep. DIS is focused on individual support and counselors are available to all students.


Our condolences go out to the families and friends of our students.
