Dylan Afandi Age
Dylan Afandi was 11-years-old.
People that knew the boy from Pen-twyn, who gave evidence, described Dylan as a “happy, bubbly, and bright boy” who said he showed no signs he was troubled or had any intention to take his own life.
A local man who gave a witness statement said his son had been out walking their dog when he discovered what he thought was the body of a man.
Dylan was in hospital for more than two weeks before his family made the decision to reorient his treatment to palliative care.
Cause of death
He was extubated on May 29 and died at 5.40pm the same day. The medical cause of death was given as 1a. hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and 1b. hanging.
Dylan’s mum Sarah Morris described her son as “a bubbly, cheeky little monkey”. She said: “Mammy’s brightest, happiest, funny little boy – you have left a massive hole in all our hearts.
“We all miss you dearly and God has gained you way too early. You had your whole life ahead of you and we will forever be heartbroken. Until we meet again – lots of love, Mammy and family.”
Normally he was gone for around an hour but his parents became concerned when he had not returned after about 90 minutes. They later received a phone call saying a boy had been found on a path near the rugby pitch.
