TRIBUTE was paid to a schoolboy who died suddenly this week as grieving staff sobbed in the corridors.
Layth Maumoniat, 12, died at home in Leeds earlier this week.
The seventh grader attended Allerton High School, and his death has left staff weeping in the hallways.
Eyewitnesses said several employees shed tears after learning of his death.
Tributes on social media described the situation as “absolutely heartbreaking” and many sent their thoughts to Layth’s family.
One wrote: “My heart breaks for him and his family. I have a son the same age and I just can’t imagine losing him.”
Another said: “RIP little prince. May you find salvation and everlasting happiness in the kingdom of God where you are safe forever. Quiet little one.”
A third added: “This is very sad why does this keep happening”.
A spokesman for Allerton High School confirmed to LeedsLive they were told the pupil had died but had “not heard anything” since.
They added: “Right now we can only confirm that one young student, a seventh grade student, has died.”
A Leeds City Council spokesman added: “The death of Layth Maumoniat is extremely sad and we send our sincere condolences to his family, friends and everyone else who knew him.
“We are working closely with the school to ensure staff and students are supported during this difficult time.”
An investigation into his death is to be launched.
