t is normal for couples to fight every now and then, but very often their children are the ones who suffer the consequences of their actions.

A four-year-old boy fell from the 14th floor of an apartment building while his parents were quarreling at home.

According to China Press, the couple from Anhui province, China were having an argument on the 30th of December at 4pm in the afternoon.

In the heat of the argument, the woman grabbed her four-year-old son and wanted to jump out of the window to kill herself, but her husband reached out to stop her.

He grabbed her arm and pulled her back into the room, but by doing so, the woman accidentally let go of her son who was in her arms. The boy then fell 14 floors to the ground.

An ambulance rushed to the scene where medical staff tried to save the boy, but unfortunately the boy died.

The man and woman are about 30 years old. It was reported that the boy is taken care of by his grandma, mostly on the weekends.

It’s very unfortunate that the boy had to die because of his parents’ actions. RIP.

A father who killed his daughter’s 9-year-old classmate was sentenced to death by the Shangrao Intermediate People’s Court in Jiangxi province on Friday.

The court announced the sentence to the father identified only as Wang, and deprived him of his political rights for life.

Wang said he would not appeal to higher court.

On May 9, Wang’s daughter told him she was bullied by her classmate surnamed Liu in the Shangrao No 5 Primary School, and then Wang complained about it in a WeChat group of the class, according to the court.

Since Wang had a bad temper, his wife took the initiative to communicate with the class head and Liu’s parents, hoping to solve the problem by rearranging the children’s seats, the court said.

The next morning, Wang took his daughter to school, but got angry when he discovered that Liu’s parents were not there, even though his wife had told him the problem had been resolved, the court was told.

Wang sent his daughter back home, and bought a knife to school, it said.

Later, Wang stormed into the classroom and stabbed Liu, who had moved out of his original seat, with the knife more than 10 times, and then carried him out of the classroom and dropped him on the ground, it said, adding Liu died at the hospital.

“Wang didn’t want the relationship between his daughter and her classmate to improve, and only wanted revenge. His killing of the boy, who was only 9, constitutes the crime of intentional homicide,” the court said in its ruling.

Although Wang confessed to the crime, his cruel behaviour impacted the society negatively and he was not forgiven by the victim’s family, “we therefore decided not to be lenient in punishing him,” the ruling added.

A tragedy occurred on 12th November when a 12-year-old schoolgirl jumped to her death in the elementary school building in Guangdong, China. Her father received this piece of news and rushed to her school, only to find her lying on the ground, falling unconscious.

Xiao Ru’s father painfully described when she smiled for the last time as he called out for her name. Even though she was sped to the hospital, she still couldn’t make it as she suffered from breathing difficulties and excessive blood loss.

When Xiao Ru’s father looked at the CCTV footage of what happened before her death, he broke down in tears seeing how she was treated by her mathematics teacher. According to See Hua Daily, this entire incident happened during lunchtime, when Ms Wang (the teacher) insisted to check on Xiao Ru’s homework before the young girl had any chance to eat at all.

Ms Wang threw Xiao Ru’s homework onto the ground, in front of all the kids, and she began yelling at the girl for not finishing her homework. The teacher went on to smack the girl’s palm for a couple of times with a ruler and continued criticising Xiao Ru for 3-4 minutes. All her classmates witnessed how humiliated Xiao Ru felt, and she burst into tears. Right after taking in Ms Wang’s scolding, Xiao Ru walked out of her classroom which was located on the 4th floor and jumped off the building.

Exasperated by the poor girl’s death, the father demanded the 40-year-old teacher to give an explanation about the whole disaster. However, not only that Ms Wang did not show herself after this incident, but the school was also unable to provide sufficient information regarding the teacher’s qualification certificate.

Nobody knows what she had gone through before her leap of death, we hope that she is able to rest in peace now. It’s saddening to see children choosing to end their lives because of modern-day stress that some adults sneer at, mocking them with the mindset of “we had it worse back in our days”.

A seven-month-old baby suffocated to death in the master bedroom after her parents left her alone while she was sleeping. The incident happened on January 15th this year in Singapore and the baby had reportedly been sleeping alone since December last year as her parents wanted her to “transition to the next stage of her development”.

According to CNA, the coroner’s inquiry on Friday (October 4th) revealed that the baby, Yuri Chua Le En, had suffocated when she slipped and got trapped in the 8cm gap between her mattress and the padded bed rail. The investigation found that both Yuri’s parents, who were unmarried, had been allowing her to sleep alone. They also said that they were sick that day and put her in another room so that they would not infect the baby.

Yuri’s mother said that the night before the baby’s death, she had fed and nursed Yuri as normal and put her to sleep at 9pm. Yuri was placed on a blanket in the middle of the full-sized bed in the bedroom while her mother patted her to sleep on the night of January 14th.

During the course of the night, the baby did not make any noise and her father entered the room once at about 11pm to adjust the air-conditioner settings. “He stated that the room was dark and (the baby) was not making any noise. Both parents stated that they did not hear (the baby) make any noise throughout the night,” the court documents stated.

However, her father got the shock of his life when he entered the room at about 7am and found Yuri’s body “almost fully trapped in the gap” between the mattress and the padded bed rail at the foot of the bed. Her face was turned towards the bed rail, and she was unresponsive.

Paramedics were called and when they pronounced her dead at 8am in the Jurong residence. Dr Chan Shijia, consultant forensic pathologist with the Forensic Medicine Division of the Health Sciences Authority performed the autopsy on the baby and confirmed that the baby girl had died suffocation caused by a blockage of the nose and mouth by a surface.

The baby’s mother said that Yuri could roll over, was learning to sit and could lift her head and chest up when lying down. Dr Chan said that while a seven-month-old baby could turn over on the bed, they are unable to climb or crawl properly so when Yuri got stuck in the gap, she would not have been able to free herself.

Apparently, this is not the first time the baby had gotten stuck in that same gap. A few weeks before the tragedy, the parents said that they heard Yuri crying in the middle of the night and rushed in to find her trapped in the same part of the gap before rescuing her.

The court ruled that there was no evidence of foul play in the baby’s death and State Coroner Kamala Ponnampalam said that the death was an “unfortunate misadventure” while the cause of death was consistent with suffocation. She advised others that they should ensure their babies are sleeping safely.

Although infants should not be sleeping in the same bed as others, this does not mean they should be placed in a different room. It is advisable to place an infant on his or her back and preferably to be sleeping in a well-built crib that is free of loose bedding, pillows and toys, which could cause entrapment or suffocation.

KUALA LUMPUR: The 41-year-old man involved in a road rage incident near Bandar Baru Bangi earlier this month which led to the death of Syed Muhammad Danial Syed Syakir was charged with murder at the Kajang Magistrate’s Court here today.

The charge against IT consultant Yew Wei Liang was made under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the death penalty. No bail was allowed.

Defence counsel S Selvam argued that his client should instead be charged under Section 41 of the Road Transport Act 1987, which deals with death during road accidents.

The defence also claimed that Yew was abused during remand and had to be taken to Kajang Hospital on Aug 13, adding that he had been forced into giving a confession.

Defence lawyer Varghese Onny also said the evidence could have been tampered with as calls were made from the phone of Yew’s wife, who was also remanded.

“The phone should be under police possession during the probe,” he said.

The court fixed Sept 27 for mention and to hear complaints by the defence lawyers.

Magistrate Nor Afidah Idris also ordered for Yew to be remanded at the Sungai Buloh prison.

In the incident on Aug 10, Syed Danial, 29, died following an altercation with the driver of another car over a minor accident just after the Sungai Besi toll plaza.

The two drivers got involved in a car chase and a scuffle ensued between them at the Bandar Baru Bangi interchange. Witnesses at the scene broke up the fight and the two drivers returned to their vehicles.

The younger man then got out of his vehicle with a baseball bat and smashed the other car’s bonnet. The older driver was believed to have suddenly lurched his vehicle forward, hitting the victim.

Syed Danial was pinned between the car and the road divider. He was rushed to the Nilai Medical Centre but died while receiving treatment.

It was a prank that went too far. A man has caused outrage among hundreds of residents of Tanggumung village in Sampang regency on Madura Island, East Java, after he pretended to be dead, leading to locals digging a grave for him.

The prankster, Robi Anjal, 38, who originally came from Pontianak, West Kalimantan, was discovered to still be alive after his grave had already been dug.

Robi, who was reported to have died on July 23, wrote in his will that he wanted to be buried next to KH Mohammad Alawi, a late local religious leader and father of KH. Fauroq, who leads an Islamic boarding school in the village.

Farouq said Robi was not a relative of his family nor did he know his background. To speed up his burial, residents of the village were asked to put aside their daily activities to dig the grave on Friday morning.

“Farmers didn’t water their tobacco plants and residents working out of town also decided not to go to work,” said Abdul Halim, one of the residents, as quoted by kompas.com.

The villagers became very mad after learning that Robi had been pretending to be dead. The grave was filled in on Sunday.

Fauroq said he had been suspicious from the beginning, as Robi’s body did not show any signs of death and that even after four days, the body did not emit any stench. He said he had also been informed by his students that the body was still warm.

The prank was eventually busted when mourners tickled Robi’s feet, forcing him to turn over and wake from his sleep. The revelation enraged the locals, who condemned the man for trying to fool them and a respected figure in the village.

“If he had been in front of us here, we would’ve buried half his body so he wouldn’t play around with death again,” Abdul said.

SINGAPORE – A 35-year-old man died after falling several stories inside Ngee Ann City on Sunday afternoon (July 14).

Police said they were alerted to the incident at 391 Orchard Road, the mall’s address, at 2.07pm.

The man was found lying motionless and was unconscious when taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. He later died from his injuries.

Police are investigating the case of unnatural death.

The Straits Times understands that the hospital was on standby to receive him.

According to retail staff at the mall, the man fell from the third level to the basement two level, near the escalator well.

Shopkeepers working near the escalator well at basement two said they heard a loud sound around the time the incident happened.

Part-time waiter Jerdy Ang, 21, who works at a cafe on the third floor did not witness the incident but said his colleague, who happened to be looking in the direction of the escalator then, did.

His colleague saw the man walking from the corridor towards the railing but thought he was “seeing things wrongly” and realised the man had fallen only after hearing the sound of him landing on the basement.

The colleague has given his statement to the police.

Mr Andi Adhyaksa told ST that he heard a man scream briefly, followed by the sound of a hard object hitting the floor.

The 20-year-old Indonesian student, who is here on holiday, was with his family at Heavenly Wang, a restaurant near where the incident happened.

Seconds later, he heard two women screaming. They were subsequently interviewed by the police who also moved the man, he added.

“The person fell near the escalator, and there was a big pool of blood where he fell,” Mr Andi said.

An eyewitness, who declined to be named, told ST that she saw a pool of blood outside the ActionCity toy store at the mall’s basement two level.

Police were talking to three people seated on a bench outside the store, the eyewitness said.

According to an eyewitness, the teenager fell after he climbed over the railing onto a ledge, which gave way.

A staff member of the store told ST that she was serving a customer at the kiosk outside the shop when the man landed in front of them.

The mall was crowded at the time of the incident and a crowd gathered around the area, said Mr Ang. He added that a woman also stepped forward to help the man before police and paramedics arrived but he did not know if they knew each other.

The scene was cleaned up shortly before 5pm.

A Ngee Ann City spokesman said that the mall’s security personnel responded within minutes of the incident and assisted the injured man, before handing him over to police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force when they arrived.

The mall is also assisting businesses and staff affected by the incident, he said, adding that there have been no other calls for assistance from shoppers.

“We regret that this incident has occurred in our mall and we would like to reassure all our staff and customers that their safety and security is also our top priority,” the spokesman said.
