A Indian international student studying for a graduate degree in physics drowned in a swimming pool on the University of Rhode Island campus over the weekend.

Emergency crews attended the Tootell Aquatic Center on Sunday afternoon to find lifeguards performing CPR on Suhail Habeeb.

He was taken to South County Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

It was the second drowning death of an international student in the US on the same weekend.  Another Indian international student drowned while kayaking with friends on a Dallas lake.
