A heartbroken mum has revealed how her ten-year-old son died in a tragic rope swing accident with his friends.
Riain Brennan-Byrne, 10, from Wicklow, Ireland, was visiting Leicestershire for his summer holidays when he died on August 7.
He had been playing in Holly Hayes Wood in in Whitwick, near Coalville, where his group of pals began playing with a swing made from a blue cord hanging from the branches of a tree, an inquest heard.
Riain became tangled in the rope, and was found hanging by his friends, Leicestershire Live reports. He died in hospital an hour later.
