Cameron’s family also issued a statement to the public: “Cameron died in a tragic accident. His death is such a great loss.
“During his short life, he touched so many people with his friendliness, kindness and thoughtful generosity of spirit. He will be hugely missed by his family and friends.
“The family are finding it hard to come to terms with this sudden loss and would ask for privacy at this sad time.”
Police were unable to confirm if Cameron had taken part in the ice bucket challenge but Cllr Alice McGarry who lives near the scene said: “Some children have been jumping off the cliffs at the quarry. They have always done that, but it seems there has been a recent increase because of this challenge.”
Two years ago there were warnings of a serious accident when a video, titled ‘Inverkeithing Quarry Big Jump’ was posted on YouTube.
