WORTHINGTON, Ohio (WTVN) -- A vigil is planned Tuesday night in Worthington to remember a student-athlete who died on a school trip. 

Thomas Worthington high school students organized the gathering for Eric Clark, whose body was pulled Monday from the Atlantic Ccean in South Carolina.

Clark was pulled under by strong currents while swimming with friends this past weekend.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Clark's family to help with expenses.
