‘Beautiful’ 15-year-old boy dies after plummeting from multi-storey car park

A 15-year-old boy has died after falling from a multi-storey car park.

The tragic teenager, who has been named locally as Gabriel Santer, was rushed to hospital after falling from a building on Hanover Street in Liverpool's city centre on Saturday at around 8.25pm.

Police confirmed that a male had died from his injuries despite the efforts of paramedics at the scene and officers are not treating the death as suspicious.

Candles, bouquets of flowers, stuffed penguin toys and pictures have been left at shrines to the popular pupil on the grounds of Calderstones School in the suburb of Allerton and at the Pier Head where he was known to skateboard.

One friend who had drawn a picture of Gabriel, known as Gabe, wrote simply: "I love you, you know."

Another printed picture of the teen had a heartbreaking message typed across it which said: "You are loved and are capable of spreading love."

Heartbreaking tributes were also posted on social media.

One friend posted a message online which said: "Gabriel I’m heartbroken you’re gone, and am so thankful to have spent time with you, beautiful boy."
