Teen dies from aneurysm rules autopsy

A 13-year-old boy who died suddenly early on Sunday morning had a rupture of a blood vessel in the chest, an autopsy showed on Sunday afternoon.

The autopsy on Demetris Christofi from Aglandjia, Nicosia was carried out by medical examiners Nicolas Charalambous and Sofoklis Sofokleous at Larnaca general.

The boy had been visiting his grandparents in Mazotos village for the weekend, and felt unwell shortly after midnight on Saturday while at the village park with some friends.

He then rode his motorcycle to his grandparents’ house nearby, but fell unconscious shortly thereafter.

An ambulance took the unconscious boy to the emergency room of Larnaca general, where doctors failed to resuscitate him.

Medical examiners identified the boy’s cause of death as being due to a “thoracic aortic aneurysm.”
