It is said the student, who had a health condition, drowned on the deep end of the hotel’s swimming pool.
First aid was performed on the learner, but he died while being rushed to Mediheal Hospital in Eldoret.
His body was moved to the hospital’s mortuary.
Eldoret East OCPD, John Owuoth, confirmed the incident.
