Lottie Fullerton, a fourth year medical student at Jesus College, has died after sustaining head injuries whilst trekking in Nepal.

Fullerton, who was 22, died after being hit on the head by a boulder during a descent towards Tatopani in Mustang region, Nepal, according to a local police report.

She was rushed to the district hospital in Jomson, where she was pronounced dead, according to sub-inspector Gopal Bahadur Khatri.

Tributes have been written to Fullerton, who is one of 500 people who have been killed in Nepal amidst heavy rains and landslides.

In an email sent to members of Jesus College JCR, the College said: “We know that Lottie was an extremely popular member of the JCR and will be very much missed by her peers.”

The College has offered bereavement support to all who might be affected by the news.

Friend, Polly Lamming, wrote in an obituary to be published by Cherwell: “There is no one in Jesus who does not love and respect her.  There is no one in Oxford’s sports world that does not smile when they think of her. There are no medics in our year who do not sing her praises.

“Charlotte Fullerton was the best of people, and will always, always, be remembered as such.”

A service is to be organised at Jesus College chapel in her memory.
