A TRAGIC 14-year-old boy said "I’m going to sleep" moments before he died after falling through a factory roof, his distraught sister said today.
Mason Scott was playing with pals at the abandoned factory in Coventry, West Midlands, at around 5pm yesterday when the horror unfolded.
He was rushed to hospital but sadly couldn't be saved and died shortly after.
Police say the teen's death is not being treated as suspicious.
His sister Morgan has now revealed the teenager's tragic final words as he lay dying.
She told The Sun Online: "After the accident, he said ‘five more minutes, I’m going to sleep’.
“It comforts me that he thought he was just going to sleep."
Morgan, who posted a heartbreaking tribute on social media to her brother, also said his school pals have been left "devastated" by the fatal accident.
'COMPLETELY DEVASTATED US'
Mason's dad Craig Finch has also paid tribute to the teenager – and said he only went out because his computer was broken.
He added: “Mason was just playing with his mates. He would usually just play with them online – he hated going out.
“It’s just completely devastated us.
“Mason would do anything for anyone. He had a heart of gold – he was such a nice boy. He was always smiling and laughing.
“There was not a bad bone in his body. He was just the most amazing kid.
"He was the reason I got up in the morning."
Horrified locals say the boy was playing with pals at the old bike dipping factory when he toppled through the roof.
West Midlands Police confirmed the tragedy and said Mason's death will be referred to the coroner.
A spokesman said: “A 14-year-old boy has died after falling through the roof of a derelict building on Torrington Avenue in Coventry yesterday.
“Emergency services were called just before 5pm and the child was taken to hospital but sadly nothing could be done to save him and he died a short time later.
“His death is not being treated as suspicious and will be referred to the coroner.”
