SHSU Benefit & Memorial

On March 31, 2018 a tragic incident occured along the shores of St.Lucia. The lives of two medical students Indumathi Raman and Bhuvan Gengatharan were taken way too soon near Desruisseaux. 

The students encountered an unexpected rogue wave that dragged them under water and Dr. Boopathi jumped in heroically in an attempt to save the students. After about 40 minutes of intense struggling a local fisherman came to the rescue.

A beloved professor at Spartan Health Sciences University, Dr. Boopathi Subramaniam attempted to save both students, however encountered great difficulty himself.

While the bodies of the two students were recovered, unfortunately the search continues for Dr. Boopathi.

My name is Monica Agaybi and I was a student of Dr. Boopathi. In this time of need, the spartan health sciences community of students, faculty, staff and families come together in solidarity and strength to support one another.

The students are fundraising through this campaign in contribution to morally support families, such as paying for funeral purposes and his child’s education. If you would like to help please make a donation in any amount.

All cost to return the bodies to their families in India, as well as supplement the continued costs of the search and rescue team for Dr. Boopathi will be bared by Spartan Health Science University.
