Nigerian Boy Schooling In US Drowns While Swimming With Friends (PHOTOS)

18-year-old Nigerian, Austin Oga from Johnson City, drowned on South Holston Lake near the Highway 421 boat ramp on Monday afternoon. He was a year-two student at East Tennessee State University, studying computer science.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says Oga was swimming with a group of friends near the boat ramp when he went under and did not resurface. One of the swimmers attempted to help Oga but was unsuccessful.

A diver with the Kingsport Lifesaving Crew was in the area when the call came out. He responded to the scene and located Oga a short time later. The 18-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
