A 21-year-old Jamaican student of the Caribbean Maritime University (CMU) in Kingston, drowned after saving a woman from also drowning at Vortex Springs, Florida in the United States on Wednesday. Many have hailed his heroic exploits. 

The student has since been identified as Terril Crossfield, who was residing in Pensacola, Florida at the time of his death.

 

According to a release from the Holmes County Sheriff's Office in Florida, deputies responded to the drowning at the Vortex Springs venue on Wednesday at around 1:30 p.m. 

 

Vortex Springs is a freshwater diving, swimming and camping resort located in Ponce De Leon.

 

Eyewitnesses told the police that Crossfield responded to a female swimmer, who showed signs of being distressed in the water.

 

The Jamaican successfully passed the swimmer to another individual in the water to bring her to safety on shore.

 

But Crossfield then started experiencing difficulties and went underwater. 

 

Witnesses told the police that a diver pulled the student from the water and CPR was administered until emergency responders arrived.

 

The Holmes County Sheriff's Office said Crossfield was later pronounced dead at the scene.

 

As news spread of the tragic death of the Maritime student, several Jamaicans expressed their sadness of the news on social media site, Facebook.

 

"Terril (Crossfield) you died being a hero bro. My heart is cold and bleeding right now when I heard of your death. You were kind, helpful and honest. Sleep in peace, but I wish you could come back," one social media user posted.

 

Another comment read: "So sad... Such a promising young man. May his soul rest in peace... Keeping his family and friends in my prayers."
