An eastern Iowa community is grieving an 18-year-old college student who local officials believe died after exposure to the subzero temperatures pervading the Midwest.

Gerald Belz was a first-year student from Cedar Rapids on the pre-medicine track at the University of Iowa. University police said they found the freshman unresponsive near a campus building just before 3 a.m. Wednesday. He later died at a hospital.

Gerald wanted to become a surgeon. He wanted to help people.  He was in his first year of pre-medicine. He may be the first student death directly related to Climate Change in The United States.
