Boy, 5, plunges from office block to death after ‘being left for 10 minutes’January 9, 2019
A young boy has died after falling around 80ft from an office block – after his parents allegedly forgot he was there and drove home.
The tragedy is thought to have happened after the young boy panicked when he saw his mum and dad drive away.
He plummeted from an eighth-floor window after his parents left.
According to the Shin Min Daily News, the boy had fallen asleep as his parents worked, but woke to discover he had been locked inside the building.
The boy, named Soo Jia He, died at the scene. He was believed to have been left alone for just 10 minutes.
His mum, identified simply as Ms Hu, said she realised what had happened too late, and rushed back to find him.
She said: "Our home is only a five-minute drive from the office. I couldn’t believe that when we rushed back to the office, we would see my son’s body lying on the ground floor."
And the boy’s father told the Straits Times : "We don’t know for sure how it happened, but all that does not matter now, the end result is still the same.
"Just like that, our son is gone. How are we going to be okay again?"
He said the boy was the youngest of their four children, and was doted on by the couple.
