A government primary school boy was found hanging from a rotary clothesline in his home last week after he tried to imitate the act of committing suicide.
Latu Kali, a class six student at Popua Primary School was believed to have been playing with his classmates when he put his t-shirt around his neck and tied it to the clothesline.
He told his friends to leave as he was going to sleep but he was later found dead.
An autopsy report says the death has been classified as a suicide.
Kali’s funeral was held on Wednesday 24.
He was the fourth of nine children born to Vaivevea and Naisa Kali of Popua.
