CBBC star Mya-Lecia Naylor died after hanging herself at family home



A CBBC child star died by misadventure after hanging at her family home, an inquest has ruled.

Mya-Lecia Naylor , 16, died after being found in a marquee at her home in south London in April.

Emergency services were called at about 10am on April 7, to reports of a teenage girl in cardiac arrest.

She was pronounced dead at Croydon University Hospital just after 11.30am.

Mya-Lecia was due to sit her GCSEs this summer but her parents had received a phone call from the school saying her grades were lower than expected.

 

Her dad, Martin Naylor, believes her death was a “silly mistake”.

He said: “I believe she did not mean to do it.”

Assistant coroner Toby Watkin concluded that the teenager – who starred in CBBC shows such as Millie Inbetween and Almost Never  – “did not intend to end her own life” and concluded her death was by misadventure.

A toxicology report revealed no evidence of drugs or alcohol in her system and searches of her phones, laptop and social media accounts did not present anything suspicious.
