An eyewitness told the local police that the girl was seen jumping from the bridge straight into the waters of the Hudson River. The impact with the surface has probably been non-fatal, as Adeoye surfaced shortly after her long jump.

The fate of the student remains unclear. Some claimed that she was seen swimming towards the New York bank of the Hudson, while other witnesses informed that Adeoye lost her battle with strong currents of the river and was swept away by them. 

According to the information obtained by SaharaReporters from police officials, the student was declared missing and the investigations were underway. 

Neither the school board, nor New York High School Superintendent’s office in Brooklyn could clear the air on the situation with the missing gifted Nigerian-American girl.

We pray for her survival.
