A 12-year-old girl died after falling from the 12th floor to the third floor of an apartment building in Hoang Mai District, Hanoi on Tuesday night.
The incident occurred at the HH4C building in Linh Dam apartment complex in Hoang Mai District at around 10:00 pm on the same day.
Residents of the building heard a loud bang at that time and ran outdoors to check.
At the skylight area on the third floor, they saw a girl lying immobile.
The victim died on the spot, according to local authorities.
She was later verified to live in a flat on the 12th floor of the apartment building, a representative of its management board told Thanh Nien (Young People) newspaper on Wednesday morning.
The girl was determined to have fallen from the window ventilator of her flat to the skylight.
“The girl’s parents had separated,” the management board’s representative said.
“During their investigation, the authorities discovered a suicide note allegedly written by the girl.”
Hoang Mai District police are investigating to clarify the cause of the incident.
