The chilling moment a 300 level student of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo state, nearly drowned was captured on video.
The woman identified as Priscilla, a 300 level accounting student, had gone to swim at the Olumo beach, otherwise known as the Sabo beach. It was their Hostel Week at school so she went with others from her hostel for a picnic.
A video shared online shows the students standing around the shallow part of the water before Priscilla ventures into the deep end. After a short while, she’s seen flailing her arms as she tries to get the attention of her colleagues.
At this point, there was commotion already and the person filming immediately drops the camera so the screen is blank but voices can still be heard as her friends screamed and tried to get to her in time.
Luckily, she made it out alive.
Initially, there were reports that she passed on and her photo was being circulated with RIP written on it. But a report has been sent out that she survived.
A video of the near drowning incident has been shared online but it’s disturbing.
