Albert Yin, a 13-year-old from Glenwood, Maryland, died suddenly and unexpectedly in a drowning accident on June 29th, 2018, in a lake near Interlaken, Switzerland.

Albert was a popular student at Glenwood Middle School where he excelled as a student and played cello in the school orchestra. 

He was also a piano prodigy who performed in concert halls all over the world. Albert started playing piano when he was five years old and enjoyed traveling with his piano school friends. Most recently, he performed at the Culture and Convention Centre in Lucerne where he played the Hungarian Rhapsody by Liszt beautifully and powerfully just one day before the tragedy.

Albert was a dedicated and strong ice hockey player. He played for many years (#10) for the Tri-City Eagles and, most recently, for Team Maryland. Off the ice, Albert was beloved by his teammates, who will always remember his warm smile and fun-loving demeanor. 

His family and close friends have gathered in Switzerland to be by his side as arrangements are being made to bring Albert back to the United States.
