The devastated older sister of a nine-year-old boy who died in a tragic playground accident has shared a heartbreaking tribute to him. 

Seth Tran Anderson, 9, was found dead near Wanguri Primary School in Darwin on Wednesday.

He reportedly used an item of clothing to reach the handles of a flying fox before becoming entangled.  

A Go Fund Me page has been since been created to assist the Anderson family in preparing for Seth's funeral.

'Imelda is a single mother with four children. She’s the hardest working person and she has never given up hope/faith on her children or herself,' the post reads.

'What has happened is beyond comprehension. 'This campaign is created to help with the costs of Seth's funeral and to support Imelda and her family during this difficult time.'

'We kindly ask if you can donate whatever you can.'

Seth's sister Gabriella shared a heartfelt tribute to her younger brother on social media, saying he was a 'beautiful and smart boy'.

'Indeed you were a handful, but that's the price of having younger siblings, but you've always been by my side ever since you were born my little brother,' she wrote on Facebook. 

'You were always such a beautiful and smart boy, and I was so eager to watch you grow up and become the man that every girl would be all over for, but your time came too soon. 

'My special angel, rest in peace. For your love will live on through many hearts. Fly high and keep watch over us and keep that unforgettable smile on your face. Love you always.'

Gabriella also shared photos of her family, in which she is seen posing and joking with her brother and other family members.  

The boy was rushed to Royal Darwin Hospital about 7.30pm on Wednesday night where he later died. 

Northern Territory Education Department on Thursday confirmed the tragedy.

'The school principal has been in contact with the family today to offer support where possible,' they said in a statement.

'Counsellors have been working at the school from this morning and will remain here for as long as students and staff require.

'A letter has been sent to families this afternoon to extend support should they also require it either via the school counsellors or through EASA.'

The cause of death has been identified as a result of misadventure.

'Northern Territory Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the non-suspicious death of a child in Wanguri,' Major Crime Squad senior sergeant Matt Allen said in a statement.

'A report will be prepared for the coroner.'
