HEARTFELT tributes have been paid to teenager with “good heart” who tragically died while on holiday with friends in Turkey on May 18.

Solihull student Subhan Khan had his life cut short on the Aegean Coast of Altinkum after an alleged swimming accident.

The 19-year-old had planned a three day trip to Turkey with family and friends.

But he got into difficulties and drowned shortly into the holiday.

His tragic and untimely death has left family and friends in a state of shock.

Paying tribute, Subhan’s friend, Megs Hegdekar said: “I can’t believe it, still feel sick to my stomach re-reading our old conversations”

“life is way too unpredictable and this definitely isn’t fair, please know there’s so much love and thoughts of you going round.”

The Foreign Office have confirmed they are providing support for Subhan’s devastated family – and a police investigation is under way.
