A Ghanaian engineer in the United States, Andrew Amuna, has died via drowning in a truly shocking turn of events.
Andrew Amuna reportedly passed away Saturday.
The 27-year old is a very young but accomplished Ghanaian engineer in the United States.
He had completed his masters in electrical engineering and had reportedly been a valedictorian and two-time commencement speaker at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte.
In short, he was extremely high achieving despite a very young age.
He, unfortunately, passed away Saturday in the ‘Snake river’ in Washington State, US.
The U.S summer is around and apparently, Andrew wanted to have a day of outdoor fun but it did not end well.
Reports say he was fishing with a friend in the river when he somehow fell overboard and drowned.
Ghanaian journalist Israel Laryea posted the news on his Facebook handle.
Israel wrote: “Yes, it’s true Andrew Amuna, 27 is no more.
The young Ghanaian engineer drowned at the Granite Point Snake River near Pullman County, Washington State, USA where he had joined a colleague on a fishing expedition, Saturday afternoon.
Pullman Radio reports, Andy drowned while swimming in the Snake River.
According to the radio station’s article, Whitman County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the scene West of Pullman around 4:30.
The 911 caller reported that the male went missing after being in the water near the shoreline.
Authorities searched the water in boats and jet skis before calling in the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team.
Divers located the male deceased in 9 feet of water about 10 feet from shore.
It was only a week ago that Andy moved to Washington State from North Carolina after he was transferred by the company he is working with, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories.
The body was transported to the King County Medical Examiner’s office Monday, July 26 for autopsy, July 27.
Please bear up the Amuna Family of Bongo Dua in prayer at this very difficult time.
Andy enjoyed a lot of love and admiration when I posted him on this page back in February this year.
May he truly rest in peace.
