LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A University of Southern California student died after he fell from a hotel balcony in Cabo San Lucas Tuesday.

Samuel Levine, 22, was on spring break with a group of students from USC and his fraternity, Sigma Chi, when the accident happened.

Jonathan, the victim’s friend, said everyone is talking about Levine’s death.

“Everyone Greek-affiliated from USC is traumatized because a lot of people saw it from what I heard,” he said.

On March 6, Levine tweeted he would talk to one of his friends when he got back from vacation.

Levine’s classmates are now taking to Twitter to talk about their loss.

Friends said they expect the news to really sink in when classes resume Monday.

“He’s been here since freshman year. A lot of people know him. It’s going to be a traumatic experience for a lot of people. Not just in Greek life, but at the school,” said Jonathan.

Levine, a psychology major, graduated from Oak Park High School in 2009. During his freshman year at USC, he continued to coach basketball at the school.

USC is offering grief counselors to any student who needs help dealing with Levine’s death.
