Schoolboy Hamdan Aslam's cause of death revealed as family say 'no one to blame' for playground tragedy | The Sun

A SCHOOLBOY died of natural causes after collapsing in a playground incident, his heartbroken family confirmed today.

Hamdan Aslam, 14, passed away at St Kentigern's Academy in Blackburn, West Lothian, on Tuesday.

Emergency crews rushed to the high school around 1.20pm after the alarm was raised.

But the lad sadly could not be saved.

A post mortem examination has since confirmed that Hamdan died from natural causes.

The youngster had a pre-existing heart condition that tragically had never been discovered before his death.

His devastated relatives said that “there is no one to blame” for his sudden passing.

A police probe is underway and a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

Hamdan’s family hailed him as a “beautiful boy” and said his death was “God’s will”.

A touching statement read: “Our family is left devastated by the sudden and tragic loss of our beautiful boy Hamdan who brought so much joy to our lives.

“We want to assure Hamdan’s friends and our community that this was an entirely natural death and could not have been predicted.

“A full police investigation is being carried out, but we can confirm that Hamdan had a pre-existing heart condition that had never been detected, and sadly his death could have occurred at any time.

“There is no one to blame for his loss, it was God’s will.

“We know that Hamdan’s loss is being deeply felt by his friends and teachers and we would urge those who have engaged in rumours on social media to stop, it is untruthful and compounding our grief."

It added: “Please take down the posts, the running commentary is unhelpful to the children, teachers and our family who have been left deeply traumatised and devastated.

“We know that Hamdan’s teachers and friends did everything possible to save his life and for that our family will for ever be grateful to them.”

Chief Inspector Jocelyn O’Connor said: “This has been a tragic incident which has deeply affected everyone at the school.

"Our thoughts remain with Hamdan's family and friends at this very difficult time and we are providing our support to them."
