Suhail Habeeb, a graduate student in physics from India, died on Sunday following an incident that occurred in a Tootell Physical Education Center pool on the Kingston Campus, the University said.

The University is "saddened by the recent loss of one of our community members, Suhail Habeeb," it said.
