Friends of an 18 year old man have launched an online fundraising page after he died following a tragic incident in Kings Norton late last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service today confirmed that they were called to reports of a man lying in the road in Hillmeads Road at around 10.30pm on Monday 17th March.

A WMAS spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival crews found a man in cardiac arrest. Crews quickly commenced resuscitation efforts on scene before conveying the man by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; ambulance staff continued advanced life support en route to hospital.

“Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at hospital.”

West Midlands Police have confirmed that they are not making any enquiries into the death and that the case has been referred to the coroner.

Friends have set up a Fundrazr page to raise money for the young man's funeral. You can view the page and donate here: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/8im98?psid=fc3c363d103e4f50854bfbd740dead5b

Our thoughts are with the man's family and friends at this sad time. x
