Another Indian student died in Houston, US

Another Indian student has died in Houston, days after she was rescued along with a compatriot from a swollen lake in the US state of Texas where Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc.

Shalini Singh, hailing from Delhi, who was pursuing Masters degree in public health from the Texas A&M University, was rescued from the Lake Bryan, where she along with another Indian student Nikhil Bhatia, had gone swimming last Saturday. While Bhatia died in hospital on August 30, Singh, who continued to be in a critical condition, was declared dead late last night by doctors. According to their friends and some witnesses, Singh and Bhatia were swimming in the lake when a sudden current of water pushed them deeper.

Around 13 million people were battling catastrophic flooding and torrential rains in the storm-ravaged Texas where Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc, claiming over 50 lives.
According to the local community leaders, at least 150,000 Indian-Americans live in and around Houston area and have been badly hit by the hurricane.
