A 23-year-old woman, Femida Shaikh, dropped her baby to his death after losing her balance in high heels on a balcony.
The baby suffered spinal injuries and died before he could be taken to the hospital.
Police raced to the scene and, after investigation, ruled out any foul play, declaring the baby’s death an accident.
The mother was attending a wedding in the city of Kaylan near Mumbai in India, with her six-month-old son, Mohammed, but she was not able to walk properly in her footwear, according to local media.
Assistant Police Inspector, Vijay Khedekar, said, “We immediately reached the spot after the incident and took the baby to hospital, where he was declared dead.
“The woman and her relatives have narrated the incident.
“We have registered an Accidental Death Report in the matter and handed over the body to the family.”
