The newspaper Segre on Thursday, February 17, reported that the young child had died. The Ronda Institute in Lleida has also confined the shocking death. The 13-year-old boy had attended the Institute that is now mourning.
The Ronda Institute paid tribute and said: “We love you, we have you in mind and we will miss you”.
The death reportedly occurred at the Arnau de Vilanova Hospital. Hospital sources talking to Efe were unable to confirm the information due to the fact that a child is involved.
