|Tragic ... cop guards caves after roof collapse|
Aiden Brookes had been celebrating the Easter holidays at a "cave rave" with pals — drinking beer and listening to music.
But the 16-year-old and about 20 other teens were asleep around their campfire when the heat and 7ft flames dislodged a suitcase-sized lump of sandstone.
The A-level student — whose mum gave birth to her second child last week — suffered a cardiac arrest and stopped breathing.
An 18-year-old girl called Jessie was also hurt, suffering back, neck and rib injuries.
The friends called 999 and desperately tried to revive Aiden, guided by the operator.
Paramedics scaled rocks to reach Hermitage Caves in Bridgnorth, Shrops, where they took over from the "traumatised" youngsters but were unable to save Aiden.
The historic caverns are a regular haunt for local teens despite being fenced off after they began crumbling.
There are also "Danger — Keep Out" signs.
