Bright Osei-Agyei, a level 400 student, studying Business Administration at the University of Education, Winneba, Ghana, drowned after he went with friends, to the Sir Charles Beach to celebrate his birthday on Saturday. After several rounds of swimming, they all retired to the shore.
But after a while, Bright wanted another dip in the sea while his friends watched. Eye witness recounts that a short time after he jumped into the water, they noticed that he was struggling and had raised his hand beckoning for help. He was shouting, but his friends could not swim to the distance he was.
All hopes of rescue faded away as he was washed away out of sight before anyone could reach to save him. His body was washed ashore at the fishing harbour end of the beach, yesterday afternoon.
