A University of Southern California student died in a tragic spring break accident in Cabo San Lucas.

Samuel Levine, 22, reportedly fell to his death from a sixth floor balcony at a hotel Tuesday. The exact circumstances are not yet clear, but Mexican police say he died of severe head trauma.

USC issued a statement saying in part, "Sam touched so many of us here at USC with his talents and ambition, and we all grieve for his incredibly promising life that was tragically cut short."

Levine was majoring in psychology and was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity.

"We are very saddened by the loss of life" said Sigma Chi's executive director at the fraternity's Indiana headquarters. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Samuel's family and everybody who has been touched by this."
