The deceased was a student of Economics and Information Studies and a resident of Akuafo hall.
Reports say he was rushed to the University Hospital after lifeguards and a doctor on duty conducted CPIs on him. He, however, gave his last breath at the hospital notwithstanding all attempts by medical officials to save him. He celebrated his 22nd birthday last Monday.
The sad news came as a shock to most of his friends as they knew him to be a good swimmer.
Kofi Odoom, a floor-mate of the deceased, who was with Dennis in the swimming pool described his death as strange as “Dennis is a very good swimmer and very cautious,” Citi Fm reported.
His body has since been deposited at the morgue for autopsy.
