But on New Year’s Day nine years ago, doting father Phil Brown found his beloved little girl hanging from the headband she had excitedly unwrapped for Christmas just a few days before.
It was tied to a hammock used to store teddies in the corner of her pink bedroom. Her heartbroken parents believe she had been copying a cartoon in which a character swings from a rope.
Despite desperate attempts to resuscitate her, paramedics could not save the “little princess”, and the family was ripped apart.
Now, nearly a decade after Paige’s death, her devastated parents Phil and Lorraine, known as Lou, have made the brave decision to share the story of their grief.
