US: Indian Student Dies After Drowning in Barberville Falls

| Updated: July 9, 2024 17:32

A 25-year-old Indian student, Sai Surya Avinash Gadde, lost his life after drowning at Barberville Falls in Albany, New York. The incident occurred on July 7, approximately 240 kilometres north of Albany.

The Consulate General of India in New York expressed sorrow over the loss of Mr Gadde, who was studying at Trine University. In a statement, they extended heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. The Consulate is actively assisting with the necessary paperwork for transporting Mr. Gadde’s mortal remains back to India.

Gadde, originally from Telangana, had been spending the long weekend of July 4 in the waterfall area. According to local news reports, one person died and another was rescued at Barberville Falls in Poestenkill on Sunday. The Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the deceased was not from the local area.

Multiple rescue crews responded to the scene after two men swimming encountered trouble. Fortunately, a good Samaritan managed to save the man who was rescued.

Furthermore, Gadde’s death adds to the growing list of untimely fatalities among Indian students in the United States. Just last month, 32-year-old Dasari Gopikrishna, who had arrived in the US less than a year ago, was fatally shot during a robbery at a convenience store in Pleasant Grove, Dallas, Texas, on June 21.

Last week, the Consulate General of India in New York launched a special platform to support Indian students studying in the US. This initiative aims to provide assistance and resources to students during their academic journey.
