Circumstances (状況) (Circunstancias)
*UPDATE! We have been told that the young man has been identified and that the Japanese embassy is in contact with the proper authorities in the US. We have not been able to confirm this information, but will share as soon as possible. We will also remove this article after some time has passed to protect his privacy. Last we heard, he was still in the hospital but we are sending our prayers for his family and keeping them all in our hearts.
An unidentified Asian male was discovered in the 3700 bloc of South Meyler Street in San Pedro, California on October 9th of this year. The location is a residential area and he may have been coming or going from one of the homes. He may also have been visiting the nearby Wilders Addition Park which has a path down to beach. There are several historical sights in the area and it neighbors Long Beach if he was a visiting tourist.
The young man was in his mid-20s and suffered from a traumatic brain injury due to unknown causes. It is unclear if police believe foul play was involved or if he underwent some unexplained accident. Based on the photo being circulated, he appears to have a black eye and possibly a significant bruise on his chin. He did not have any unique tattoos, marks, scars, or other features to help with identification.
It appears that he was visiting from out of town and possibly from outside of the country. There is no reference to American credit cards, identification, or bank cards in his wallet; just the Japanese yen. This means he had not changed his money to the US Dollar which suggests someone coming from outside of the country rather than an American returning from abroad. Most Americans would have changed their money at the airport before coming back.
If he is an international student, his age would point towards a graduate student. However, this is the middle of the semester and there were no bank holidays or long vacations during that weekend during which he could have traveled. Consequently, he may be a tourist or traveling business person instead.
After he was recovered, he was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where he was in grave or critical condition according to the most recent reports.
