On Tuesday, 23-year-old Daniel Ngyuen, a 2015 Cal State Long Beach, plummeted 1,500 feet to his death. He was hiking Mt. Baldy, and in the process of helping a fellow hiker who was slipping, Daniel slipped down the trail.
On the GoFundMe page, the goal was to raise $20,000. It was close to it when I donated, but not there yet. And now, the donations have exceeded the target.
I’m both sad because of the incident and amazed at the support from more than 300 people, and I’d like to guess that not every single donor personally knew him.
RIP Daniel Nguyen.
