Teenage boy found hanged inside room

KUCHING: A youth was found hanged in his room by his cousin just as their family members were celebrating Christmas.

The 16-year-old student was seen going up to his room during a barbeque at the house in Annah Rais, Padawan near here early yesterday morning.

“I heard a thud in his room, which made me think that he might have tripped over something.

“I quickly went to his room and saw him there, hanged — and dead,” said the youth’s cousin, recalling that it was around 1am at the time.

Police were immediately contacted and a squad arrived at the scene later.

The boy’s parents said they had no clue as to what had happened.

The body was sent to Sarawak General Hospital mortuary in a police truck later in the afternoon.

Police have found no sign of foul play inside the room.
