A 13-year-old boy died after having an acute asthma attack on his second day at a new school.
Hannan Ahmed, from Staincliffe, was playing football at Mirfield Free Grammar School when the attack began, an inquest was told.
The court heart that the youngster had run up to his PE teacher saying ‘I can’t breathe’. He had an inhaler but the attack got worse, so staff called an ambulance.
Teachers placed him in the recover position and began CPR before paramedics arrived. Hannan was taken to Dewsbury and District Hospital but died in the early hours of the following morning.
His GP told the court that Hannan had been diagnosed with asthma at the age of three and used inhalers.
He said the boy had an acute increase in his asthma in February last year but had recovered well.
Coroner Dr Peter Henry Straker recorded a verdict of death by natural causes.
Hannan’s family were not at the hearing in Bradford, but his mother Anjum said in September after his death: “Heaven has received a diamond.”
