Penn State Student Drowns in Tennessee

nublan_zaki_norhadi Penn State student Nublan Zaki Norhadi was found dead Monday afternoon at Abrams Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Blount County Sheriff’s Office rescue diving team found the body of Nublan Zaki Norhadi around 1:30 p.m. Monday about 30 feet beneath the surface under the falls, according to park spokesman Bob Miller.

Nublan drowned sometime on Sunday while visiting the park with a group of approximately 30 other Penn State students. The trip was not connected with the University.

“Two of his buddies attempted to rescue Norhadi, but were also being swept away and had to be pulled out by other buddies,” Miller said.

Located at the end of a 2.5 mile trail, Abrams Falls is an approximately 20 feet tall waterfall with a hundred-foot wide natural swimming pool. The current directly underneath the falls is “known to pull people in and drag them under.”

Nublan was to return to his home country, Malaysia, this week.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
