PICTURE! 200 Level UNILAG Medical Student Drowns @ Elegushi Beach

A 200 Level Medical student of the University of Lagos, Tuesday, drowned at Elegushi beach, in Ikate, Eti-Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State.

This came as the body of a construction worker with the China Civil Engineering Construction Company, CCECC, currently working on the expansion of Ikorodu road, was recovered, Thursday, three days after he fell into the lagoon at Fadeyi Oloro bridge, Asolo, Lagos.

The 200 level student of the Department of Dentistry, whose identity was given as Eniola Abiola, went to the beach to mark the birthday of one of her friends, at about 8pm.

But tragedy struck when Eniola and other friends said to be taking photographs with the celebrant, were swept away by ocean waves.

While others reportedly managed to escape, Eniola could not. She was reportedly swept into the ocean.

Help was far from her as the lifeguards were said to have closed for the day.

The incident was said to have brought the celebration to a close as some of the panic stricken youths hurriedly left the beach, while others waited in vain for their friend to be swept back to the shore.
