MESA, Ariz. (AP) A Mormon missionary from Mesa has been killed in a train accident in Argentina, according to his family.
Benjamin Ellsworth, 19, died Friday when he fell while getting onto a train and was pulled under it, said his father, Cory Ellsworth of Mesa.
Ellsworth reported in June to the Missionary Training Center in Provo and arrived in Argentina in August. He had completed about 5 1/2 months of his two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Ellsworth trained eight months in the U.S. Marines before taking a two-year leave to go on his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
