University Of Dayton student, Michael John Lang has sadly passed away. The 18-year-old Chicago college student from La Grange was reported to have died on October 22, 2020, after a lengthy battle with COVID-19.
Michael Lang was a freshman at the University of Dayton in the Colleges of Arts and Sciences. He was in his first year of school in the College of Arts and Sciences.
According to reports from the university, Michael died after a lengthy hospital stay due to complications from COVID-19.
Lang’s mother Katy, said she had reservations about sending her son away to college in the middle of a pandemic, but she knew he was anxious to start a new chapter in his life.
“I think he just was so excited, typical 18-year-old, to get away from home,”she said.
He arrived on campus in early August and started having symptoms of COVID-19 by Labor Day. Lang told his parents he lost his sense of taste and smell.
On Sept. 13, a week after having symptoms, Lang returned home to quarantine in La Grange as well as continue his studies remotely.
Michael tested negative for COVID-19 at first but suffered a cardiac arrest toward the end of September. He was rushed to the hospital and another test found him positive for the virus.
“He had no pre-existing conditions. He had never even been to the hospital. He had his yearly physical, sports physicals,” Katy said. “He was a really healthy, young kid.”
Lang was still in the hospital when he died last Thursday.
UD Students and staff are mourning the loss of Michael Lang, and his father Paul Lang is encouraging students to take precautions more seriously.
