A ‘bubbly and beautiful’ teenager has died the day after she burnt her legs in a ‘freak accident’, her mum has said.
Tragic Alana Lynch was rushed to hospital but she contracted sepsis and passed away 24 hours after the accident on Monday.
Heartfelt tributes have been paid to the 16-year-old from Dundee, following her death from the deadly infection, the Daily Record reports.
Alana’s heartbroken mum Kim Lynch and devastated school pals at Grove Academy , where she a pupil, have taken to social media to pay tribute following her untimely death.
Kim wrote on Facebook: “Just thought I’d clear a few things up about Alana I’m sure many people want answers.
“Most people have been told about the “tragic accident” but with a lot of people being aware of Alana’s mental health I thought I’d explain.
“Alana got bad burns on her legs and ended up with sepsis.
“It all happened in less than 24 hours and is extremely tragic just didn’t want people getting the wrong idea or to be thinking they could have done more.
“Hope this puts a few minds at rest and thank you for all the love and support everyone has sent over.”
A local karate club that the tragic teen’s sister attends shared a support link for the family.

“Sister of former squad member Anya and daughter of Kim, our thoughts are with the entire family.
“Losing a loved one is incredibly difficult, words cannot express what the family are going through.
