“Mom, I’m scared! Mom, I’m scared! “
The little girl’s desperate screams echo through the neighborhood. Then the unbelievable happens: The three-year-old falls from a balcony on the sixth floor – and dies.
The tragedy happened in the Russian city of Samara (around 850 kilometers southeast of Moscow).
Local media published a video of the accident showing the girl’s mother holding her child by the T-shirt over the beam parapet as a punishment. But the T-shirt rips – and the girl falls several meters deep into her death.
According to media reports, the woman (23) is said to have been drunk at the moment of her act. She is in custody and is being investigated for murder.
On Thursday, the media published photos of soft toys and flowers that residents had placed in front of the house entrance after the crime.
