Inquest opens after “loving” Lincoln boy falls from window

An inquest has opened into the death of a six-year-old boy who died after falling from a window in Lincoln earlier this month.

As previously reported, William Coy died in hospital after falling from a window at a property in Lindum Avenue at 9.40pm on Tuesday, July 17.

Coroner P Smith opened an inquest at Lincoln Coroners Court on Wednesday, July 25.

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Coroners Service told The Lincolnite that after the inquest was formally opened on July 25 reports were requested by the Coroners Service and the case was adjourned until a date is set for a final hearing.

The spokesperson added that it will take six months to a year for the inquest to conclude.

A fundraising page set up by Amy Cash de Flores continues to raise money for the boy’s family with the total currently at £4,180 at the time of writing.

The tribute page describes William as a “wonderful, loving, happy, kind, cheeky monkey kind of a boy who has touched everyones heart who ever met him, he will be sadly missed by all and forgotten by nobody”.
