AN Oxford University student fell to his death from the Westgate Centre after taking drugs.
Max Mian, 19, pictured, was found dead on the morning of October 2, a day after the classics student had arrived in Oxford for his second year of studies.
His body was discovered a short distance from the John Lewis store by construction workers.
Last week at Oxford Coroners’ Court, Oxfordshire coroner Darren Salter delivered a verdict of accidental death.
The inquest heard how on the evening of October 1, Max and friends went out to The Swan and Castle pub in Castle Street, where he took ketamine.
After the pub, Mr Mian returned to his shared accommodation at Frewin Annex in St Michael’s Street where he played on the PlayStation going to bed in the early hours of October 2.
Mr Mian was spotted on CCTV leaving the flat at 3.25am.
It is believed he climbed the John Lewis building from the outside.
His body was discovered by workers shortly before 7am.
The inquest heard how Mr Mian had scaled buildings in the past and had also expressed a desire to enter the construction site before.
