Cell phones of the boy’s parents were apprehended and should undergo analysis, as well as a protective screen that would be broken at the time of the fall.
At first classified as “accidental”, the death of a 3-year-old boy who fell from the 10th floor of the building where he lived in Vila Guilherme, North Zone of Sao Paulo, last Saturday, 10, is investigated by Police State Civil Service as a suspect. The boy, whose name was not revealed, was found by an employee of the building he lived in at around 11:30 am on Saturday and taken to a local hospital, but he arrived dead at the scene. The child’s father noticed his disappearance a few minutes after the incident and told the police that the boy entered a disabled room, climbed into a chair and fell through a broken safety net.
