A 6-year-old girl fell to her death from her family apartment on the 43rd floor of a high-rise building in Osaka’s Abeno Ward in an apparent accident, police said Monday.
According to police, at around 2:50 p.m. on Sunday, Momoka Sasaki, an elementary school student, was found at the base of the condominium. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead soon after.
Shortly before the incident, Momoka was watching an animation with her family, which showed a character flying in the sky, Fuji TV reported. Her parents said they went into another room for a short time and shortly after, noticed that Momoka was missing. Her mother found the window to the balcony in Momoka’s room open.
Police believe the girl may have opened the window, climbed out onto the balcony and somehow went over the balcony railing.
