SALT LAKE CITY — A missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints died Friday after a bicycle crash in Mexico City.

According to Church spokesperson Sam Penrod, Elder Francisco Rene Lamadrid, 22, died on from injuries sustained in the accident.

He said Lamadrid was wearing a helmet when he was “unable to negotiate a turn at the bottom of a steep hill due to slippery conditions.”

Lamadrid was a member of the Mérida Mexico Itzimna Stake and had been serving in the Mexico City East Mission since March 2021, the statement explained.

Penrod said, “We send our love and condolences to Elder Lamadrid’s family and friends as well as the missionaries he has served alongside for the past 15 months. We pray they will each be sustained with the love of the Savior at this difficult time.”
