Tragedy at cinema as a man dies from getting his head stuck under a foot rest

Heartfelt tributes have been paid to a young father ‘who had everything to live for’ who died in a freak accident after he became wedged under a VIP cinema seat and suffered a heart attack.

Ateeq Rafiq, 24, had gone to watch a film with his wife when he dropped his phone between seats. When he bent down at the end of the film the electronic footrest on the Gold Class seats is believed to have clamped down on his head, causing him to panic.
