A 27-year-old Ghanaian engineer, Andrew Amuna, has lost his life in a drowning incident in the United States.

The deceased drowned at the Granite Point Snake River near Pullman County, Washington State, where he had joined a colleague on a fishing expedition on Saturday afternoon.

According to Pullman Radio reports, Whitman County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the scene, West of Pullman, around 4:30 pm. The 911 caller reported that the male went missing after being in the water near the shoreline.

Authorities searched the water in boats and jet skis before calling in the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team. Divers located the male deceased in 9 feet of water about 10 feet from shore.

Andrew Amuna is the son of former Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) boss, William Amuna.

He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical/Electronic Engineering from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Andrew Amuna graduated with a Master of Electrical Engineering in December 2020, from the University of North Carolina and was the 2020 Graduate School Commencement Speaker.

In February, he landed a job as an Associate Engineer with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL).

It was only a week ago that Andy moved to Washington State from North Carolina after he was transferred by the company he is working with.

One person to have thrown light on Andrew’s achievements before his demise is Israel Laryea.

The Joy News News Anchor took to Facebook to announce the sad news on Monday, July 26, 2021.

Colleagues and sympathizers have taken to social media to pay tribute to Amuna and also mourn his death.

May his soul Rest In Peace.
