A mom has been arrested on suspicion of homicide after she allegedly dropped her screaming daughter off a balcony and the lady died.
Anna Ruzankina, 23, dangled her three-year-old daughter Anastasia off the balcony as a punishment for crying, say police in Russia.
In harrowing video, Anastasia was heard begging her mom as she was dangled over the balcony.
The lady cried: “Mama, I’m scared. I’m scared, scared, scared…..I’m scared.”
Shortly after, she fell 60ft to her death.
The footage captures the ultimate second of her fall earlier than she hits the bottom.
Ruzankina then retrieved the lifeless lady and CCTV footage then captures her holding her within the raise as she took her physique again up to the household’s sixth-floor flat in Saratov, studies Life Information. She shakes the lifeless baby as if making an attempt to revive her.
Native media studies mentioned the mom had been holding the screaming lady by her T-shirt over the balcony edge however her shirt tore and he or she fell.
The incident got here after Ruzankina had been out to a nightclub and was drunk, studies claimed.
A male passer-by seen on the video mentioned he heard “a baby’s loud screams from an higher ground”.
He added: “And all of a sudden I heard a boring sound of falling. The screams stopped.
“Once I circled, I noticed a bit of lady lined in blood mendacity on the asphalt. I ran to name the emergency companies. I used to be so shocked.”
Neighbours mentioned the mom had claimed the kid climbed over the balcony herself.
“I instructed her she would fall,” the mom was heard saying to neighbours.
Ruzankina was detained on suspicion of murdering a minor and she faces up to 21 years in jail if convicted.
Reacting to the incident, the Russian Investigative Committee mentioned: “Ruzankina dropped her younger daughter, born in 2018, from the balcony.
“Presently, the suspect has been detained.”
