Form Five Learner Drowns At Birthday Party

Form Five Learner Drowns At Birthday Party

An 18-year-old Form Five pupil at First Class Academy drowned in a private swimming pool in Fairbridge Park last weekend.

Parson Kupakwashe Msekiwa (18) of Chikanga Two drowned around 4 PM on Saturday at a private party they were having with his friends in Fairbridge Park.

The teenager was pronounced dead on admission at Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital.

Acting Manicaland provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Wiseman Chinyoka confirmed the death. He said:

The deceased and his friends were swimming when he dived into the deep end of the swimming pool.

He failed to swim and when his friends noticed it, they pulled him out of the pool.

After being rescued from the pool, he started having difficulties breathing as he lay beside the pool.

He started vomiting water and was rushed to Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital. Msekiwa died upon admission at the hospital.

The matter was reported at Mutare Central Police Station.

Asst Insp Chinyoka said a post-mortem revealed that Msekiwa died due to drowning and that there was no foul play suspected. He added:

We are urging the public to always have someone experienced at their swimming pools so that they will be readily available to rescue and offer the necessary help to those who will be swimming and might need help.
