Boy, 3, dies after ‘drunken’ family member ‘throws him from sixth-floor balcony’

A three-year-old boy has tragically died after a drunken relative allegedly threw him off the sixth-floor balcony of an apartment building.

The shocking incident took place on Sunday 22 August at the Omaxe Embracia building in Lucknow, India.

According to police, the infant's mother, Priyansha Dwivedi, filed a complaint on Tuesday 24 August against her relative, Kuldeep Pandey.

In the complaint, it was alleged that Pandey threw her son from the sixth floor while in an "inebriated state".

The mother said that her elder sister, Swati Tripathi, had visited her home on Sunday, and her son went to play with Tripathi's children on the sixth floor of the apartment building, local media reports.

Dwivedi said that later in the evening, other relatives, including Kuldeep Pandey, visited her elder sister's flat.

In the complaint to police, she said: "Kuldeep Pandey, who is not on good terms with my husband Arun Dwivedi, threw my son from the sixth floor while he was playing in the balcony along with other children. Kuldeep was in an inebriated state at that time."

She added: "He later posed as if the boy had fallen accidentally from the sixth floor."

Following the complaint, Pandey was taken into police custody for questioning.

Viktoria Ivanova, 34, has said she has forgiven suspect Dr Alina Araslanova, 29, a GP who had given birth the same evening and was in the next bed at a Russian clinic.

The medic has been detained and her new daughter, her second child, removed from her care as investigators seek to understand her motive.

Dance teacher Viktoria has two other children and is desperately trying to keep going for them.

But she told how in the aftermath of baby Volodya's death she and her husband had suffered "pain, despair, grief, and denial, we sobbed and couldn't sleep at all".

"Sometimes I wanted to follow (my baby) out of the window," she said.

"And then we realised that in such a short period our Volodya had taught us to value and love even more.

"Him, each other, and our children, and life in general.

"We do not hold evil, and forgive everyone, the maternity hospital, the doctors, and this deranged woman who was with me in intensive care."
