Inquest Into Kyle Grace's Death- No One Responsible

The parents of Kyle Grace (12) Michael and Michelle Grace were left disappointed when the inquest into his death reached an emotional end today.

Magistrate Paul Visagie read out the judgement this morning ( 06 October) at the Goodwood Magistrate's Court. According to the court inquest, no one could be held responsible for the death of the Grade 6 Edgemead Primary School learner. The inquest also said that his death could not have been foreseen.

Four years ago, Kyle Grace fell 8 metres from the ceiling in the school and died as a result. A formal inquest was launched into the death of the schoolboy. The magistrate said that when making a decision regarding this matter, many questions needed to be asked.

The schools code of conduct does not allow pupils access to the hall and ceiling without staff presence. Kyle fell from the ceiling after hours when he was not supposed to be inside the building. Therefore the school could not be held accountable for the accident.

His emotional parents who wept while the findings were read are disappointed with the ruling and feel as if Kyle is being blamed and the school was not held responsible which they felt was not fair.
