16-year-old Toby Hart died after falling from cliffs at Cadgwith
A teenager died when he slipped and fell 60ft from a Cornish clifftop.
Toby Hart, 16, was on the first full day of his holiday in Cadgwith with his family and his best friend.
An inquest in Truro heard how Toby’s father ran across the beach to find his son wedged between two boulders after his fall.
Following the inquest Toby’s parents, Graham and Sally said they did not want their son’s death to deter other children from climbing.
The 16-year-old had already registered as an organ donor and his organs have helped four other people to live.
The inquest at Truro City Hall heard the Hart family arrived on July 21 last year for a week’s holiday at a bungalow in Cadgwith.
Toby had climbed the Todden, the large rock in the middle of the beach at Cadgwith, with his younger brother Stephen and best friend Jamie on July 22 at approximately 2pm.
Witness Pippa Munk, a nurse from London on holiday in Cadgwith, told the court she saw the three boys about 1m from the edge of the cliff.
She said: “I glanced up again to see that one of them had slipped. His arms were flailing. He struck the cliff twice before cartwheeling through the air.”
Mrs Munk ran to the scene and tried to resuscitate Toby while others called emergency services.
He was taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro by air ambulance where he died later that day.
Cornwall Coroner Emma Carlyon recorded a verdict of accidental death.
