Two Indian students drown in a Missouri lake in the United States

Over the weekend, two Indian nationals who were seeking higher education in the US state of Missouri perished while attempting to save another from drowning.

The incident occurred during a holiday weekend in Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has identified the two dead as Shiva Kelligari, 25, and Sunday Uthej Kunta, 24.

One of the individuals, according to the highway patrol, was swimming in the lake when he submerged and did not come to the surface. The second man reportedly dove into the water to assist the suffering man, according to local media sources.

Both students were apparently Telangana natives who were enrolled in master’s degrees at a state university.
