Cameron Sandell's canoe death was an accident
The death of a teenage canoeist who drowned in the River Medway in Kent was an accident, a coroner has ruled.
Cameron Sandell, 14, from Hunton, was canoeing with a friend at Teston Lock, near Maidstone, in April 2011 when his boat capsized.
His friend, who was in a separate canoe, managed to get him out of the boat but was unable to pull him out of the water flow.
A verdict of accidental death was recorded at the inquest in Maidstone.
Cameron's family had described him as a competent canoeist who had pursued the sport for four years and gained qualifications.
