Missionary dies after collapsing on morning jog in Provo


An LDS Missionary serving in the Utah Provo mission has passed away unexpectedly after collapsing on a morning jog with his companion.

Elder Jeffrey Rogil Guerra Alfaro, 22, collapsed Thursday “after suffering a ruptured cerebral aneurysm,” according to Ruth Todd, a spokesperson for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Alfaro, from Lidingo, Sweden, was taken to the hospital and placed on life support.

“He later passed away with family members present,” Todd said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Elder Guerra’s family during this difficult time.”
