A young father’s family were left “devastated” after he fell asleep and never woke up, with no apparent explanation for his death.
Will Jones, 26, was spotted in the bedroom of his home in Wirral, Merseyside, around 10pm on Thursday 9 June.
Paramedics tried to save the father of one child before he was pronounced dead at 10:26 p.m., with the cause of death still unknown. Liverpool Echo reports.
A family friend, Paula Harwood, 44, shared how Will was spotted wearing all his clothes and looking like he had fallen asleep.
She said: “He was literally sitting on the bed in all his clothes and looking like he had just fallen asleep, there was just no knowing.
“He had no known health problems. It’s just so sad.”
Will, who lived with his mother Sharon Lee, left a two-year-old daughter.
Paula, Sharon’s work colleague and friend, said: “Sharon is absolutely devastated. It could have been any of us with kids, so it really hits you to the core that this happened.
“Sharon is amazing, she’s a real banger with an absolute heart of gold.
“She has been with William Hill for over 16 years and is loved by everyone here.
“Everyone is just devastated and nobody has a bad word to say about Will.”

Now the friends and family have already raised £3,000 to give Will a ‘special’ farewell after making an appeal to help cover the costs of his funeral.
Paula said: “Initially we wanted to get £2,000. I figured we’d only get a few hundred at most, but it’s really off the hook.
“We will also be hosting a race night to raise some money.
“Many local businesses have donated prizes to this, so it’s great to see the community pulling together. I’m more than happy with it.”
The heartbreaking news has hit the entire community – but Paula added that Sharon was “completely overwhelmed by the kindness of family, friends and complete strangers”.
