Child pushed, plunges to death from flat
Johannesburg - A 6-year-old boy fell to his death from the sixth floor of a flat in Berea on Tuesday afternoon, Johannesburg emergency services said.
"It is alleged that the boy and a friend were playing at the passage of the flat when his friend pushed him," said spokesperson Percy Morokane.
The boy fell through the window of Pristine Place. He suffered head trauma and broken bones and was declared dead at the scene.
"We would like appeal to parents, especially as school holidays are approaching, to know where their kids are," said Morokane.
"Parents and guardians should talk to their children about safety at home, on the road and in parks."
He said the boy's family would undergo counselling.
