Post mortem examination confirmed that USP student died of heart failure

The Solomon Island student who died at the University of the South Pacific pool on Thursday had a heart failure, Fiji police have confirmed.

Police spokesman Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed that Dudley Kafa, a 38 year-old student from Isabel, collapsed after taking swimming classes at Laucala Campus pool.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Kafa was a Bachelor of Arts student majoring in Education and Management & Public Administration at USP.

He is survived by his wife and two children.

The University convenes an inter-faith memorial service in his honour today (April 27) at 2.00pm in the AusAID Lecture Theatre.

A USP delegation, led by the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Law, Dr Akanisi Kedrayate, including a student representative, will accompany Kafa's body to the Solomon Islands tomorrow where he will be laid to rest.
