A 13-year-old boy has died after falling from the eighth floor of a block of flats in north-west London.
Officers from the Metropolitan police were called at 6.45am on Monday to the residential building in Olympic Way, Wembley. Paramedics from the London ambulance service also attended but the teenager died at the scene.
His death is being treated as unexplained, the force said, adding that no arrests had been made and inquiries were continuing.
The boy is believed to have fallen from Archery Court, where neighbours told the Evening Standard his body was discovered by a resident on the balcony of their first-floor flat.
Haider Narallah, the chairman of the local residents’ association, told the newspaper: “The paramedics were working really hard on him, they were shouting to each other. It was a very distressing scene.
“The family are lovely. The mother is such a nice person. She is with the police now. She is devastated.”
The Met said the boy’s next of kin had been informed and were being supported by specialist officers.
