The teen named Danielle Maragh had climbed through a ceiling before falling with her head-first from the roof of her family home, just three days after her 17th birthday on April 9th.

Danielle and Shauna’s room (her young sister), which was in the fourth floor attic in Holloway, north London, had a sky-light window.

Her fafter, Charles Maragh, 48, told the inquest, "She was quite happy in life. She never missed a day at school. She was just a normal teenager really."

"It was eight or nine o’clock, she came in our room, when we was talking. About half an hour later I just heard some tumbling. Then my window smashed and I saw her on the floor outside in front and I just ran down," he told St Pancras Coroner’s Court.

Mr Maragh said he found his daughter unresponsive and he could only detect her breathing by putting his hand in her mouth. Paramedics were called at 8.58pm but she was pronounced dead at the scene at 9.33pm.

Shauna’s statement said that she had left her grey iPhone 7 on the pillows of her bed when she left Danielle in their room and went downstairs to do the washing up. 

Then, a search team found Shauna’s grey iPhone when they examined the roof of the home six days after her death.  They recording the death as a tragic accident.

The coroner said a post mortem examination found Danielle’s medical cause of death was ‘severe traumatic head injury.’
