IVANOVO, August 28 (RIA Novosti) – A woman from the Central Russian city of Ryazan threw her nine-month-old son out of a ninth floor window during a visit by child welfare officers, the region’s police department said on Tuesday.
Two officers of the police unit for the issues of minors visited a 23-year-old woman, following a request from her mother, who said her daughter was not taking proper care of the baby.
“The woman was in a state of agitation. In a conversation, she complained of difficult life and then, suddenly, threw the baby who she held in her hands, out of the ninth floor window,” the Ryazan Region police department said in a statement.
One of the officers ran downstairs and called doctors, but it was too late. The other held the woman before investigators arrived.
