Uniuyo Political Science 100 Level Student Drowns During Pool Party At De Vegas Paradise Hotel Swimming Pool In Uyo Akwa Ibom State

Another drowning incident has been reported in the wake of non-stop pool party being organized by undergraduates at various high institutions across the country.

The latest victim of pool party drowning is Kingsley Etim, a first year student of the University of Uyo who drowned last night.

Here is what an eyewitness who requested anonymity said about the tragedy that happened around 9pm on Saturday at De Vegas Paradise hotel in Uyo Akwa Ibom State.

“When my friends and I were about leaving the venue of the party to catch up with time before they locked our hostel, we heard someone had drowned in the pool. I was shocked because there was no sign of such and everyone had left the pool a long time before then”.

“No one noticed he was drowned . Maybe because it was already dark and there was loud music. When he was brought out, people tried to revive him but it was all in vain” she said.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.

Etim’s corpse has been deposited at an undisclosed mortuary in the city.

    Hotel should be fined..they can control binge drinking by these young boys or at least have a life guard by the pool side..i even suggest a mopol in the area to control illicit activities that may be associated with the events.such outing at night time needs supervision.
    parents be mindful of such hang young man and comfort to the families.

    Sad, some of this kids like to overdo everything, the adrenaline age is understandable, but there should always be a limit, either he is not good in swimming or probably high on something,hence, thought he was enjoying while drowning.

    My prayer to your parents and loved ones, not easy to

    What is with these children and pool parties? Who knows maybe he drank himself to stupor or his drink was poisoned before entering the pool. Adults dont just drown in pools, especially where there are many people. All these so called hotels had better started using life guards at so called pool parties to avoid more stories that touch the heart
