A university student died after impaling himself on a railing while taking a shortcut through a park in the middle of the night, an inquest has learned.

Suhith Mahendra, 23, was reported to be on his way back in the early hours of May 19 after picking up food with a friend.

The pair were traversing an alley near a community park before reportedly trying to “climb or jump” over some metal railings.

But Oxford Brookes marketing student Shith impaled himself on the spikes – he sustained two wounds to his abdomen, an inquest said.

Despite the best efforts of his friend, who was performing CPR, he was pronounced dead at 5.25am at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
