A 14-year-old boy has tragically died in a waterfall after a huge emergency services operation tried to rescue him.

The child entered the water around Goit Stock Waterfall in Bradford, on Tuesday, March 30, the hottest day of the year so far.

Emergency services were dispatched, including ambulances and underwater rescue teams.

Police do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances, Yorkshire Live reports.

West Yorkshire Police said in a statement: "Police were called just after 6pm yesterday evening [March 30] to reports of a concern for safety at Goit Stock waterfall off Hallas Lane, Cullingworth.

"A 14-year-old male had entered the water.

"Emergency services attended, including fire service, ambulance and underwater rescue teams and recovered a body from the water.

"There are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances and a file has been prepared for the coroner."

Earlier this month, tributes were paid to a three-year-old boy who died after falling into a canal while on a walk with his mum.

Dylan Milsom was feeding ducks with his mum in Newbury, Berkshire, on Saturday, March 13, when tragedy struck.

The accident occurred on the Kennet & Avon Canal, near a weir.

It took place just metres away from Victoria Park, where dozens of children were enjoying a day out with their parents.

Shelley Nardini, 36, jumped in and tried to save her son – but they were both pulled downstream by the current, The Sun reports.

The pair were rushed to hospital for treatment and Dylan was pronounced dead later that day.

Social worker Shelley and her beloved child were just a day away from celebrating Mother’s Day.
