THE devastated family of a teen girl who died after being found unconscious in a car park has paid tribute to the “beautiful soul”.
Chloe Wheatman, 13, was found on Brighton Road in Sutton, Surrey, at around 1am last Friday.
She was rushed to hospital but died a short time later.
Her heartbroken family have since spoken out about their loss, describing Chloe as a “little firework”.
Chloe’s sister Jade, 22, told My London: “Chloe was a person that all of her friends would go to when they needed someone.
“She was always there for them and a shoulder to cry on. Chloe was such a beautiful soul.
“People describe her as a little firework, she was always living the fast life. She was very adventurous.
“She was a little rebel, put it that way, always trying new things and she thought she was about 25 but she was only 13.”
Jade said Chloe’s passion was music and the adventurous teen loved art and graffiti.
She lived in Merton with Jade and her mum, Sarah, and had a big group of friends at her school, Greenshaw High.
