Teachers and friends pay tribute to boy of six who died after trampoline fall

The friends and extended family of a little boy who died after falling from a trampoline have paid tribute to him.

Six-year-old Cain MacDonald was taken to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness after the incident, but tragically he died. He reportedly suffered severe head injuries.

His devastated mum and dad and brother are now said to be 'trying to come to terms' with their heartbreaking loss, while their community and other family members have paid their respects to Cain online and through their local newspaper.

Cain's head teacher Shona MacKinnon said the Dalneigh Primary school pupil was a 'popular little boy' who would be 'greatly missed'.

"This is a shock to all the school community and we are deeply saddened," she told the Daily Record. Parent council chairwoman Sam Hallam added: "He was a really nice boy. It is very sad."

A statement from his grieving family said: "Cain was a loving, happy and active child.

"He was a typical wee boy and loved playing outside with his brothers, cousins and friends.

"We are devastated by his loss and he will be sorely missed by us all."

Psychologists have visited his school to counsel his school mates.
