A LANGUAGE student who came to Oxford to study died of cardiac failure, an inquest heard.
Thailand-born Keerati Homsriprasert was staying with a host family in Desborough Crescent, Rose Hill, while he attended EF Academy Oxford in Headington.
The inquest heard at Oxfordshire Coroner’s Court yesterday that the 17-year-old had returned home on Monday, March 25, following an evening in the city.
His roommate Daniel Taver-Colet said Mr Homsriprasert fell asleep that evening, but had trouble breathing and fell on the floor.
He was pronounced dead in the early hours of the following day at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital.
Oxfordshire coroner Darren Salter recorded a verdict of natural causes.
