A 13-year-old Nigerian boy died while trying to save a drowning teenage girl in a small lake in Dublin, Ireland.
The unfortunate incident occurred on Friday in the Waterville Hall residential complex in Blanchardstown, Dublin according to the Irish Mirror. The boy - Ricky Osagie, and another teenage girl had attempted to rescue the girl who was drowning.
According to reports, Ricky may have known he might have been risking his life when he dived into the lake, as he couldn’t swim.
Witnesses reportedly stated that he had been under water “for at least 10 minutes” before he was found.
The heroic teenager remained in intensive care for hours before he eventually passed away with his parents by his side. The girl he saved, as well as the other girl who was also part of the rescue attempt, are said to be in stable condition.
Ricky was reportedly a teenage soccer sensation, with big dreams of representing Ireland someday.
