Community remembers popular exchange student

Another memorial service is planned Wednesday night in Pulaski County for an exchange student who drowned Tuesday.

19-year-old Fasika Sibehatu drowned at his host family's home in Somerset. Investigators say he didn't know how to swim and ruled his death an accident.

The Ethiopian native was studying at Somerset Christian School and was due to return to Africa soon.

Classmates held a memorial service Wednesday morning and another one is scheduled to start at 6:00 at First Baptist Church in Somerset.
