PHOTO: Nigerian man drowns at UK sex party

26 August 2016, 15:40

Hertforshire - A Nigerian man, who has been identified as Edmund Echukwu has died after being submerged in a swimming pool at a sex party in Hertfordshire, southern England.

The father-of-three was said to have drowned after drinking whisky and jumping in a swimming pool during a James Bond-themed orgy.

Daily Star reports that trouble started when Edmund, who was a first-time swinger and shy person, suddenly grabbed a woman he was swimming with before diving under water at the £3million Radlett mansion which has been famous for its regular adult-themed parties for 19 years.

The woman, named only as Rachael in court, said she thought Edmund was just messing around and wriggled free from him.

The British tabloid reports that Edmund, who is from Edgware in Middlesex, was underwater for ten minutes before the alarm was raised by a fellow male partygoer who reportedly warned guests by saying: “He’s been under too long”.

Edmund’s close friend, Anthony Okonkwo, who is still shocked by the social worker’s death, revealed that he (Edmund) had told him he was “going to evening Mass at church”.

Geoffrey Sullivan,senior coroner for Hertfordshire, according to Naij, has now ruled that there was no foul play in Edmund’s demise, according to him the Nigerian died by accident just after midnight and the cause of death was immersion and minor alcohol intoxication.
