​Tragic boy, 10, accidentally hanged himself just after making mum cup of tea



A FOOTBALL-MAD accidentally hanged himself in an act of “childhood curiosity” after making his mum a cup of tea, an inquest found.

Tragic Alfie Hyett, 10, from Hereford, who made playful YouTube videos, was found unconscious by his mother Louise Hembrow, 43, in his bedroom.

The schoolboy was rushed to Hereford County Hospital but he could not be saved.

Alfie, who was a talented player for Hereford City Sky Blues juniors, had been playful on the day he died on March 9, 2016.

Ms Hembrow said: “He was as jolly as ever after school that day and made me a cup of tea.

“But later in the evening he didn’t respond when I called him.

“I went to his room and found him.

“He was a very happy boy. I really have no idea what happened and no explanation for it at all.”

At the time of the incident his heartbroken mother shared the sad news on Facebook.

She added: “Alfie’s my beautiful boy. He is my life and my world and I love him with every breath I have in my body.

“Just one more hug please. Love mummy.”

The 43-year-old first feared Alfie had died after taking part in the internet “choking game” craze but this was later dismissed by cops.

Police found the 10-year-old had moved his mirror and may have been watching himself as he played alone in his room.
