A three-year-old boy has died after a fireplace fell on him in the family home.

He was taken to hospital following the tragic accident at a property in Gateshead on Monday but could not be saved. An investigation has now been launched to establish exactly how it happened.

Yesterday floral tributes were left outside the family home as one neighbour told of the moment the toddler's mother called for help.


Tributes have been left outside the family home where a three-year-old boy died after a fireplace fell on him
Kevin Mitchinson, who waited with her until the ambulance arrived, said: 'His mum came running into my house crying saying that the fireplace had fallen.
'It was terrible, I waited with her until the ambulance arrived.


'They are a lovely, quiet family, it's hard to accept what has happened. All our thoughts are with them.'

Fellow neighbour Joseph Jackson said: 'It's nice to see the flowers, to know that they have support.

'It's horrible to think of something like this happening.'

Simon Michaels added: 'It's hard to believe something like this has happened, it's heartbreaking. Life is so unfair.'


The toddler was taken to hospital following the tragic accident at a property in Gateshead on Monday but could not be saved. A message outside the home read: 'Baby Jack, we still can't believe your gone [sic]'
Reverend Claire Cullingworth, of nearby St Alban's Church, told the Newcastle Chronicle: 'Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. I heard about it via Facebook. It's just unimaginable.
'As a parent with my own kids, my heart goes out to them. It's just horrible.'
Police said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.
A spokesman added: 'There is no third party involvement. A report is being prepared for the coroner.'
Officers and paramedics were called to the home in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, at around 4pm on Monday.
The boy was taken to the town's Queen Elizabeth Hospital but was pronounced dead shortly after.
