U student drowns

Minnesota Daily, CAMPUS - 20-year-old Elomo Lenya accidentally drowned while visiting a friend on Thursday night. [ full story here]

The Daily cranked out a very human article explaining the circumstances of Elomo's death. She had visited her mother only three hours prior, and was going to visit and swim with a 15-year-old friend whom she had once mentored in Cameroon. Her friend saw her struggling, and called for help, but it was too late.

Elomo had a lot of ambitions, and was very close to her family. She was studying medicine, and hoped to return to Africa with her father, Emmanual Lenya, to help with the relief effort.

So far, service dates have not been set, but if you wish to make a donation to help her family with the funeral costs, (both abroad and here in the United States) here is the necessary information.
