Newly married Nigerian student dies after rescuing a drowning lady in Russia
A Newly married Nigerian student, Eluemunor Richard Okasia, has died after rescuing a drowning lady at a beach in Kaliningrad, Russia.
It was gathered that Okasia and his wife were at a yet-to-be disclosed beach when they saw a young girl drowning.
According to a source, Okasia’s wife begged him not go into the ocean to save the girl, but he refused.
Okasia was a student of Marine University, who got married barely a year ago.
“He was part of a group of four guys that tried to rescue the girl that was drowning. He was the first to reach her and he pushed her out of the strong current.
The others were then able to get the girl to the beach. He himself was then carried deep into the sea by the current. He couldn’t get out. He was above the water for a few minutes and then went under the water,” a source said.
