Dylan Sanchez-Pinsent fell into the River Cherwell from a path alongside the Botanical Garden. He was recovered from the river but later died.

At the opening of the inquest into his death in February 2017, coroner Darren Salter heard that Sanchez-Pinsent had a history of epilepsy and it was thought likely that lost control when he suffered a fit, with the cause of death suggested to be drowning. The inquest has been adjourned.
