Boy chokes to death on a pen cap
Treasured family snaps are a small comfort to a mum whose teenage son died after he choked on a pen top.
Loving Ben Stirland, 13, was especially close to his mum Nathalie Hodgson, who nearly lost him when he contracted meningitis as a child.
Today, in spite of her overwhelming grief, Nathalie, 38, is planning a campaign to warn other parents of the hidden danger of pen tops.
Ben was doing his homework when he slipped off his chair and swallowed the top off the ball-point pen he had been chewing.
Desperate attempts were made to revive him by emergency crews called to his home, but Ben never regained consciousness and he died in hospital two days later.
