Victim in kayak accident identified as NPCC basketball player

July 12, 2016

The man presumed dead following a tragic kayaking accident near North Platte has been identified as 20-year-old Samson Charles Bidan.

Bidan, who is from Tanzania, was kayaking with two other people on Monday night when he and a female were pulled into a Western Engineering sand pit, just east of North Platte, through a breach in the dike.

Sheriff Jerome Kramer says, during the 2011 floods, the United States Army Corps of Engineers forced Western to breach the dike between their sandpit and the North Platte River, so water could flow through the north end of the pit and out the south end of the pit. This created a tragic scenario when Bidan and his companions got to close to the breach.

Kramer said the sand pit is 50 to 80 feet deep, compared to the three-foot depth of the river. He said there is also a large amount of quick sand, and they fear that Bidan could possibly be covered with sand.

Witnesses say they saw Bidan flailing and asking for help, but they were unable to get him out. The female was rescued, but Bidan has not been seen since.

Law enforcement, the Lincoln County Dive Team and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission have all been involved in the recovery effort but, so far, they have not been able to locate Bidan’s body. The effort has been hindered debris floating through the pit. Kramer said it has made it difficult for Game and Parks sonar equipment to get good images underneath the surface of the water.

Western Engineering employees spent the afternoon blocking the breach, hoping that stopping the flow of water will decrease the amount of debris in the water and allow the water level to normalize. In the meantime, search boats and divers have continued searching for Bidan. Kramer says they are aware of the area where he went into the water, so they have been searching that area extensively.

Bidan, who is seven feet tall, was slated to play basketball for Coach Kevin O’Connor and the Nort Platte Community College men’s basketball team. Dr. Jody Tomanek, Vice-President of North Platte Community College, said, “This is a sad and tragic day for NPCC and the Knight’s athletic program. In the short time Samson was with the College, he made a huge impact on the students, faculty, and staff. Samson always had a smile on his face and he will be greatly missed.”

As 7:00 p.m., on Tuesday, Bidan has not been located.

Oh Very saddening. God comfort the family and close people touched by his death. He was still young and may be just started to live his dreams.
