Fatal Accident of Scholarship Holder

We are deeply shocked to hear of the fatal swimming accident which occurred at a lake in Reith on Thursday. After diving into the water, one of our scholarship holders, a 23-year-old from Ghana, had to be resuscitated. He was later pronounced dead at Innsbruck Hospital.

“This is a tragedy for the Forum, and the staff and other scholarship holders send the family of the young man our deepest sympathy. He and his family will be in our thoughts in the coming days”, said Franz Fischler at a service with the scholarship holders on Thursday evening.

A book of condolences will be available in the Congress Centre. Anyone who wishes to is welcome to write down their thoughts and memories.
