THE FAMILY of a 21-year-old who died have paid tribute to a man who ‘enjoyed life’.

Sebastian Low was found with a ligature around his neck at his girlfriend’s home on January 14.

He was taken to Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital but died six days later, an inquest heard.

His grandad Kenneth Low, has spoken of how ‘nothing ever fazed’ Sebastian, known as ‘Seb.’

He said: “He had a keen interest in motorcycles and making aeroplanes. He also loved music.

“My wife took responsibility for Sebastian growing up and treated him as a son. He enjoyed life.”

A painter and a decorator, Sebastian also donated his organs, going on to ‘save a number of lives. ‘

His actions prompted praise from coroner James Newman who said: “If more people could donate organs, it would hugely benefit society."

At the hearing in Preston, the coroner heard Sebastian had made two threats to harm himself.

The inquest also heard how Sebastian’s relationship with his girlfriend Hannah Jankowski had ended twice in the months running up to his death.

Ms Jankowski said: “On the evening of January 13 between 7 to 8pm, Sebastian went to Bargain Booze and purchased alcohol.

“So we returned home and started drinking.

“I noticed Sebastian had started to slur his words.

“I became concerned about his behaviour and spoke to his brother through Facebook.

“Sebastian became annoyed that I’d been speaking to his brother that night.”

Ms Jankowski said Sebastian went on to make two threats to harm himself with a knife and cleaver, before dropping them both on the bedroom floor.

After Sebastian, of Agnes Street, Blackburn, then left the room, Ms Jankowski later found him hanging in another room.

Mr Newman, Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen coroner, said he ‘lacked the evidence’ that Sebastian had took his own life.

He said: “His death was more likely a cry for help action taken by Sebastian to provoke a response.

“Sebastian was transferred to Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital, but he had sustained catastrophic brain injuries as a result of a lack of oxygen caused by a cardiac arrest and died as a result of his injuries.

“I record a short-narrative verdict that Sebastian died as a result of deliberate asphyxiation by a ligature."
