Boy, 14, who died at Lewis Capaldi's old school was 'put in a chokehold' trends now
The first picture has been released of a 14-year-old schoolboy who died 'after being put in a chokehold' in a playground incident, according to his family.
Hamdan Khaliq was rushed to hospital after emergency services were called to St Kentigern's Academy in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, at around 1.20pm on Tuesday. He died a short time later.
The school, where singer Lewis Capaldi and comedian Fern Brady were once pupils, said there had been an 'isolated incident' within the grounds. Witnesses reported seeing Hamdan having a seizure.
Police reportedly do not think the incident was part of an 'online challenge' amid social media speculation it was a so-called 'tap out' game.
His heartbroken cousin, Zain Mohammed, 29, said: 'Hamdan was being bullied for being different. He was put in a chokehold and it's being passed off as a game called Tap Out.'
