A 13-year-old boy died after he apparently jumped from an apartment building in Kobe on Tuesday morning.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday at a 13-floor apartment building in the city’s Higashi-Nada ward.
The boy’s body was found by his father in the condo’s parking lot. The father told police he had noticed his son was not in the apartment and had gone out to look for him.
The boy was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead about 50 minutes later.
Police said there was a note in the boy’s bedroom, indicating that he was going to commit suicide.© Japan Today
