Details of Disappearance

Xiang disappeared from Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming on July 23, 2015. He was swimming with two friends in the Yellowstone River near Hellroaring Creek when, at 11:45 a.m., he was pulled away from shore by the current and got swept away into a long stretch of rapids.

In February 2018, park staff discovered human bones near the site of Xiang's disappearance. It wasn't until July 2019 that DNA confirmed the remains were Xiang's. His family came to the park from China to take his body back home.
