A 1-year-old boy fell from his family's 5th story apartment into the parking lot below in Setagaya Ward on Wednesday. The boy was rushed to hospital but died soon after arrival.
According to police, the baby boy, Masato Anda, was playing with his two 4-year-old sisters at around 4:40 p.m. There was a railing in front of an open window, but a desk had been placed nearby. Police suspect Masato climbed up, then accidentally fell over the railing.
The three children were alone in the apartment at the time, and the incident occurred while Masato's mother had gone out for about 10 minutes. A neighbor spotted the fallen boy and called police.© News reports
