The emergency services were called but the medics could not save the young lad’s life and he was declared dead at the scene, reports Actu 17.

An investigation has been opened to determine the circumstances surround the boy’s death.

According to the report, his parents told the police their son had been overwhelmed by the amount of schoolwork he had been given since lockdown measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus had been introduced.

“He had no suicidal history and left no letter explaining his actions,” the police are said to have stated.

The latest figures for France show 10,238 people have died from the virus since March 1.

In the past 24 hours, 607 deaths have been recorded in hospitals.


A further 820 deaths were recorded in nursing homes.

However, they may have taken place over several days and are only now being added to the total.

France has been under lockdown since March, 15 with fines for violations.
