Members of a Leduc family are flying to Mexico to bring home the body of Mark Hayduk, 23, who drowned early Thursday morning at a resort in Cancun.

Three family members, including Hayduk's brothers are flying to Mexico Friday night, his father Nicholas told CBC News.

Hayduk was at a resort this week with friends when the tragedy occured.

Those friends flew home Thursday night and met with the family, but they did not talk about the details surrounding the accident, said Hayduk's father.

Media reports said Hayduk returned to the resort after a night out and went into the ocean with his friends.

The reports said he drowned after being caught in strong waves.
