Solomon student at USP dies at Laucala Campus swimming pool
The student identified as Dudley Kafa from Isabel Province who is in his early 30s drowned in the pool during a swimming class at around midday today.
Attempts by fellow students to revive Kafa proved futile. The actual cause of his sudden death could not be verified at this time but a post mortem examination is expected to be carried out tomorrow morning to determine the cause of death.
It is understood the sudden death of the Solomon student has shocked the local student body in Suva as well as late Kafa's classmates.
The body of late Kafa is currently being kept at the Suva Colonial War Memorial (CWM) Hospital awaiting transport arrangements to Solomon Islands for burial.
A team of Fiji police officers were at the scene today trying to determine the cause of death after receiving a report of the incident after midday.
