Merseyside Police confirmed today that a 15-year-old boy has died after falling from a multi-story car park in Birmingham. The boy fell from the structure on October 17, and emergency teams quickly attended the scene. An air ambulance also landed in nearby Smithfields but medics could not save the boy, who died shortly after the fall. 

A spokesman for Merseyside Police confirmed there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death. 

They said: “We were called after a teenage boy fell from a multi-storey car park on Moor Street in Birmingham city centre around 12.30pm, on October 17.

“The 15-year-old was sadly confirmed dead shortly afterwards.

“There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death, which will be referred to the coroner.”

“Our thoughts are with his family, and the rest of the community, at this distressing time.”

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Services said emergency crews arrived at the scene in the afternoon. 

They said ambulances, paramedics and doctors found the patient in “critical condition”. 

The spokesman said: “We were called to a medical emergency at 12.23pm to near Moor Street Car Park, Birmingham.”

“Three ambulances, two paramedic officers, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were responded to the scene.

“On arrival crews found a patient in a critical condition and commenced advanced trauma care.

“The patient was conveyed to hospital by land ambulance for further emergency treatment.”

Police briefly closed off Moor Street, the site of one of the city’s main train stations, as the air ambulance arrived, and it has since reopened.
