Ethan McKen, a 24 year old teacher from Nottingham and a Brunel Graduate, tragically died in Bulgaria after going missing in the sea.
The BBC reported that Ethan went missing on Saturday 8th August after being swept away by the sea, while staying at the Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach in Bulgaria. On Sunday 9th, his body was discovered and the UK Foreign Office confirmed the death.
Ethan was heavily involved in sport, not only playing for the Bulwell FC reserve team, but also gaining a first class honours degree in Sports Science and Management as well as his PGCert from Brunel University London, in order to teach PE. It is also believed that he played for the Brunel Burners, the American Football team on campus, although this is still to be confirmed.
Tributes and one minute silences are being held for Ethan at all of Bulwell FC's mid-week and Saturday fixtures this week, in honour of his tragic death.
Condolences are sent to his family and friends.
