Kid falls from balcony and dies

A four year old girl slipped from the seventh floor of an apartment in Choolaimedu and died. The girl named G.Sharada was a pre KG student in a nearby school. According to Police sources, the girl went to sleep after having her dinner. Her mother left her alone and took her one year old son and went to meet a neighbor on the sixth floor. When the girl woke up suddenly, she started searching for her mother. While standing on the balcony, she slipped through the grill and fell from a height of 70 feet.

On hearing the noise, her mother and other neighbors ran to the spot and rushed her to a private hospital nearby. She was later shifted to Children’s hospital at Egmore but sadly she succumbed to the head injury. Her body has been shifted to the Kilpauk Medical College for post mortem. The Police have registered a case and are investigating the matter.
