A man simply identified as Kingsley has died after a Lexus SUV plunged into a river behind EFAB estate in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja on Monday.

They were said to be three in the SUV when the accident happened. The SUV which was on motion fell off a narrow bridge and landed in the flooded river.

Witnesses were however fast to come to their rescue and were able to rescue Kingsley first. Shortly after he regained consciousness, he screamed his uncle was in the car and ran back into the river to rescue him. Sadly, Kingsley died in the process and after hours of searching for him, his body was found. An eyewitness also has this to say;

“I was hearing a shout from my room; so, I came out and saw people trying to bring the driver out of the vehicle. We had to smash the windscreen to bring him out of the car but in the process of doing that, he was beginning to drown and we managed to bring him out and took him to the hospital, but the third guy who was in the back seat drowned and we couldn’t find him.”
