EnCon Police Release Names of Wesleyan Students Involved in Boating Accident in Hebron

EnCon Police have released the names of the Wesleyan students who were involved in a boating accident on Amston Lake in Hebron over the weekend.

Authorities said 19-year-old Nabiha Syed, of Elmont, New York, and 18-year-old Roshaan Siddiqui, of Chicago, are currently admitted to Hartford Hospital. On Monday, officials from Wesleyan said two students remain hospitalized and one of them is in intensive care.

Zainab Mubalsher, 19, of Aldie, Virginia, was treated at Middlesex Marlborough Clinic and has since been released, police said.

Another woman, later identified as 19-year-old Nadya Jaunbocus, of Port Louis, Maritius, refused medical attention, officers added. It is unclear if she is also a Wesleyan student.

A spokesperson for EnCon Police previously said three teens were rescued from the water during a canoe accident on Saturday. A 19-year-old woman was in the water for an unknown time and was flown to Hartford Hospital, where she remains in intensive care. Investigators said she was unresponsive on the way to the hospital.

"We’re still on the early ends of this investigation and we have several different conflicting reports that we’re working through," EnCon Police Captain Eric Lundin said.

Wesleyan University released a statement on Sunday.

"We have been in touch with the families, are providing support for the students involved, and assisting authorities investigating the incident. The health and safety of our students is paramount, and we are all hoping for the student’s recovery," the school said in part.

The incident remains under investigation.
