A 17-year-old Hampton University freshman drowned at a campus pool party earlier this week, according to the school’s official website.

David Esan was a pharmacy major from Randallstown, Maryland who lived in Harkness Hall on the school’s campus. He was a member of the choir and recognized as one of Harkness Hall’s “16 Men of Excellence” for academic commitment and community service.

The accident is currently being investigated by Hampton University Police and grief counseling will be available for students.
