Grim CCTV footage shows the tragic teen, named Ravi Delwar, working the evening shift in a restaurant at Mister Hotel, in Indore, a city in west-central India at around 11:30pm on 9th September.
In the video, the boy seen wearing jeans and a grey T-shirt, who appears to be clearing a table as the rest of the staff prepares for closing.
Ravi is then seen trying to drag a table across the tiled and seemingly freshly-mopped floor when his sandals slip, causing him to lose balance.
The boy falls on his back and smacks his head hard against the floor where he gets instantly knocked out.
Seconds later, a man wearing a hair net and an apron notices Ravi lying unconscious on the floor and runs over to him.
He pulls him up, apparently trying to get him to stand up but the boy is unresponsive.
The employees later rushed Ravi to hospital, local media reported, but doctors could not save him and declared him dead.
His brother-in-law, Narendra, mentioned that he was informed about the incident almost immediately, but Ravi had already passed away by the time he arrived at the hospital.
Narendra further claimed that instead of being taken to Bombay Hospital, which he claimed is closer to the restaurant, the staff took him to a private hospital where Ravi did not get proper treatment and died.
