A yet to be identified student of the Rivers State University was electrocuted on Tuesday, June 13, by a high tension cable. She was found lying near the school main gate shuttle park and and rushed to the Health Care Centre where she was confirmed dead.

According to an eyewitness, the young lady was trying to cross over an erosion following a heavy rain that began in the early hours of that fateful day.

"The erosion  she was trying to to get across had a high tension wire in it as a result of a pole that fell on Monday, June 12th. The deceased had no idea that there was wire in the water."

It was gathered that the school authorities reportedly contacted officials of the PHED to inform them of the fallen cable.

  1. Couldn't they have also sent out a circular to students and others concerned?

    See how their carelessness and PHED's negligence have cost this precious life.

    Hope she is prepared for eternity though - that is more important right now than anything else.
