Post Family of Minn. man sues over spring break death (AP)

AP - The family of a college student who died on a spring break trip to Mexico has filed a lawsuit alleging it happened after a struggle with a traveling companion who has competed in ultimate fighting competitions.

University of St. Thomas freshman Josh Gunderson died March 24 after he apparently fell, hit his head and choked on his own vomit.

His family's lawsuit says Gunderson died after a confrontation with mixed martial artist Zachery Jensen, a bodyguard for Ashley Jones. The lawsuit claims Jensen told a hotel employee he woke to find Gunderson attacking Jones.

The 27-year-old Jensen has competed on Spike TV's reality series "The Ultimate Fighter."

Jensen did not return phone or e-mail messages left by The Associated Press.

Geez. Not only does this not appear to have anything to do with Baja, but it also appears to have nothing to do with Mexico.
