Last week, U.S. student Otto Warmbier was medically evacuated from North Korean detainment, where he had been in a coma for over a year from serving hard labor.

Sadly, the 22-year-old passed away just a few days later while surrounded by family in Cincinnati.

Otto's parents Fred and Cindy Warmbier made the devastating announcement on Monday, saying the "awful torturous mistreatment" their son received while detained abroad "ensured that no other outcome was possible."

Last year, the University of Virginia student was found guilty of "subversion" for attempting to steal a political banner while staying in North Korea with a tour group. He was sentenced to 15-years of hard labor for the alleged anti-state acts.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said Otto had extensive loss of brain tissue, and was in a state of unresponsive wakefulness.

While no doubt grieving the loss of their son, Otto's parents said they detected a positive change in his mostly non-responsive state over the past week, saying "he was at home and we believe he could sense that."

Our hearts go out to the Warmbier family.
