A 15-year-old boy collapsed and died in the middle of a restaurant over the weekend in the United Kingdom while out with his family and friends.
Liverpool Echo reports that the boy was at the Browns Restaurant Saturday in the Liverpool ONE on Paradise Street when he suddenly collapsed.
Members of the staff and others tended to him while paramedics were en route.
Once on scene, paramedics rushed him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
“Emergency services were called to Browns Restaurant on Paradise Street at about 5.50pm following reports that a teenager, who was with family and friends had collapsed,” a Merseyside Police spokesperson said.
“A number of members of the public and staff at the restaurant had provided medical assistance prior to the emergency services attending,” police added. “The teenager was taken to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital where sadly he died a short time later.”
Police said that the death “is not believed to be suspicious, and a file is being prepared for the Coroner.”
“Next of kin have been spoken to and specialist officers are supporting the family at this tragic time,” police added.
