The man who was pulled out of Mirror Lake Aug. 18 remained in critical condition at the Wexner Medical Center in the Intensive Care Unit Thursday afternoon, according to Wexner Medical Center spokeswoman Sherri Kirk.
Tushar Shriram Kabre, age 28, was rescued from the lake after a 911 call reporting a “person in distress in Mirror Lake” was received at approximately 5 p.m., and other bystanders approached the Ohio State Public Safety Mobile Command Unit that was in the area to get additional help.
The female OSU student who made the call declined to comment on the situation.
Police officers and Student Safety officers jumped into Mirror Lake to pull Kabre from the water and bystanders reported paramedics performed CPR and chest resuscitations for several minutes without any apparent reaction from him.
OSU Administration and Planning spokeswoman Lindsay Komlanc said in an email Kabre “received a masters of science in chemistry degree in Autumn 2011” and that he is not currently enrolled at the university.
OSU Ph.D. candidate Krishna Patel, an acquaintance of Kabre’s from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, told The Lantern Aug. 19 Kabre was a student from India and he didn’t know of any relatives of Kabre’s in the area.
Attempts to locate relatives of Kabre were unsuccessful.
