Kenyan man drowns in a lake in Baltimore, Maryland, three months after migrating to the US (PHOTO)

Friday, July 12, 2019- A 26-year old Kenyan man, who immigrated to the United States three months ago, has died after drowning in a lake in Baltimore, Maryland.

According to Baltimore County fire officials, people playing on a nearby basketball court heard someone yelling from the pond and ran over to help.

However, they were unsuccessful in their attempts to rescue him and called police.


Divers arrived shortly after were able to find the victim under water and pulled him from the lake.

The man, who was later identified as 26-years old John Omari Hassan, was rushed to Franklin Square Hospital in critical condition, where he later passed on.

Police are still investigating how the deceased ended up into the lake because swimming is prohibited in the pond and there are signs to that effect around the area.

Hassan, who migrated to Baltimore I April 2019, hails from Nakuru and he graduated from Kenyatta University in October 2016.
