A 4-year-old girl fell to her death after she bounced off a bed and went through the window of the 6th-floor hotel room in which she and her parents were staying in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture, on Monday night, police said Tuesday.
According to police, the girl was jumping on the two beds in the room at the Floral Inn Himeji at about 6:40 p.m. Monday when she bounced off one of the beds and fell through the open window. She fell approximately 10 meters and landed on a concrete ledge on the third floor.
The bed was placed about 40 cm from the open window. At the time of the incident, the girl's parents were in the room and called 119 as soon as she fell out the window. The family, from Kagawa Prefecture, had been in town for four days to see a boxing tournament.© News reports
