A 15-year-old boy was found hanged by his brother in the bedroom they shared together.
Dixon Strachan was rushed to hospital after being discovered by his brother but died in Alder Hey Children’s Hospital on February 10.
Police examined Dixon’s phone but no evidence was found as to a possible explanation for the tragedy.
The inquest also heard about a former classmate of Dixon, from the same village, who was found hanged two years ago.
At an inquest this week, a coroner said there was no evidence Dixon had intended to take his own life and ruled out a link with the other boy’s death.
The Preston inquest was told that Year 11 pupil Dixon was studying for his GCSEs at Garstang Academy.
He had been applying for college places and his death came as a ”bolt out of the blue.”
He was described as a ‘fun, caring, enthusiastic person who always made people laugh and smile no matter what’.
Dixon’s mother Gemma Wall said: ‘“He was looking to go to college this September, he was studying for his GCSEs he enjoyed school.
“He used to get me up in the morning. He was very punctual and he had a morning routine where we would sit together for an hour.
“There was no rushing him in the morning he got himself ready.
“I collected him on the Wednesday from school because he had a migraine and he didn’t go back to school for the rest of that week, he died on the Sunday.
“The other boy was older. He was in the year above. They went to a small village primary school.
“They were in the same class for a few years – but they weren’t close friends.
“It was just all unexpected and out of the blue. That day had been so normal he asked me to make his lunch and make him a coffee which I did – he had told me on the Friday that he had applied for college.”
Det Sgt Simon Balderstone, of Lancashire Police who investigated the tragedy, said: ”We attended the home address and were shown to the bedroom shared with his brother at the front of the property in the rural village of Calder Vale, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, in Lancashire.
”There were bunkbeds and he slept on the upper bunk, in the room there were a couple of Playstations and phones.”
Recording a narrative verdict coroner Richard Taylor said: “Dixon had been at home with his mum and brothers.
“His mother had gone to Fleetwood and come back at 4pm. She shouted for the children to come down but he didn’t come downstairs.
“His brother went upstairs and found him. Dixon was applying for college places and there was nothing in his phone to arouse suspicion.
“A boy from the village had hung himself – they would have been friends when they were younger but there was no link between them.
“There is insufficient evidence to determine his intent. There is no evidence of that at all. We can’t say he intended to end his life.
“I’m sorry you have to relive this although I suspect you relive it every day, I hope it is a small step in the grieving process.”
In a Facebook post at the time of Dixon’s death Miss Wall, a former teaching assistant said; ”Everything has changed, yet nothing has changed. We go on as before but with a sadness, a heaviness that won’t go away.
“We laugh still and we cry too. The house is quieter, someone important is missing and we will never get him back. The pain of losing your child is truly horrific.”
Alasdair Ashcroft, principal of Garstang Academy, said: “We are greatly saddened by this piece of news, and our thoughts and condolences are with the student’s family and friends at this difficult time.
“During this time, as our school community processes the tragic news and copes with grief, we will offer counselling and bereavement support services to all our students and staff.”
