Child died of heart attack after colliding with other boy while playing football

More than 200 people including relatives, friends and residents of Orihuela Costa came together on Thursday afternoon to remember and pay homage to Kai, the little 8 year old boy who died on Wednesday at Alicante General Hospital after suffering a heart attack the day before when he crashed into another child when they were playing football on Cala Bosque beach in La Zenia, Orihuela Costa.

The beach became an improvised altar of flowers, teddy bears and photos in memory of the British boy, who at the time of the fatal accident was with his grandmother, who attended the tribute and was supported at all times by everyone there.

Also present were Orihuela Costa Local Police, who were the first on the scene to attend to the child after the accident. Councillor SofÍa Álvarez came from the Town Hall.
