  • A 14-year-old boy who fell to his death from a Londen tower block may have done so as he leaned off the balcony to look at the stars in the night sky, his heartbroken mother has said.

    Marcel Bruchal, from Newham, had been in his grandparents’ flat on the seventh floor of Sleaford House, a 19-storey residential block in Bow, when he fell on Saturday night, Maart 19.

    He sustained fatal injuries in the fall and died despite the best efforts of his distraught younger brother, grandparents and paramedics.

    Sy ma, Karolina Bruchal, has paid tribute to her ‘most caring, most intelligent’ son, and believes that tragically, his love of astronomy might have contributed to what happened.

    In a statement released after the incident, police said they were treating his death as ‘unexplained’ but not suspicious.

    Ms Bruchal, who works as a midwife at The Royal London Hospital, said Marcel and his 11-year-old brother, Vincent, had been visiting her parents for the weekend and had ‘had a great day’ playing ping pong before the incident.

    Marcel’s grandparents rushed downstairs to help him and the emergency services were called.

    ‘They brought a little pillow and blanket so he was not cold and at some point the ambulance came.

    Ms Bruchal said her family was beyond devastated at what seems to be a tragic accident.

    ‘He was the most caring, the most intelligent and smart and funny (seuntjie),' sy het gese.

    ‘He loved his little brother so much, he was very smart. He wanted to be an astronomer. He was choosing his GCSEs and he wanted to study astronomy.

    ‘We think this is why it happened because it was a very clear night and he possibly went out to look at the stars. We believe it was a tragic accident, he leaned too far.

    ‘He was liked by everyone, he had lots of friends. We are still in disbelief, we are still hoping we are going to wake up.

    ‘We will all need support and counselling, but we are trying to cope. I cannot say that we are sad, we are not sad or devastatedthat doesn’t express how we feel. There are no words to express how we feel.’

    Floral tributes have been left to him, including this one which says: 'Such a huge loss - with my deepest sympathy. RIP young man'

    Floral tributes have been left to Marcel outside the residential block, which is between Blackthorn Street and Fern Street in Bow, following the tragedy.

    Among those placing tributes was Sharon Chambers, a colleague of Ms Bruchal at The Royal London Hospital, who said he was ‘the most amazing boy’.

    Sy het gese: ‘He was a really homely boy, family-oriented, he loved his brother, and they all did things together as a family like going for days out.

    ‘They’re just the most amazing kids, and he was the most amazing boy. It’s just devastated all of us. We all feel so numb. And there’s just nothing we can do.’

    A GoFundMe-bladsy set up by colleagues of Ms Bruchal to help the family with funeral costs has already raised £2,230 as people try to rally round them in this awful time

    In a statement released two days after his death, the Metropolitan Police said while it was treating his death as ‘unexplained’, it did not believe it to be suspicious.
