A woman in central Russia's Ryazan city threw her nine-month-old son out of a ninth floor window during a visit by child welfare officers, police said.
Two officers of a police unit for issues related to minors visited the 23-year-old woman, following a request from her mother, who said her daughter was not taking proper care of the baby.
"The woman was in a state of agitation. In a conversation, she complained of difficult life and then suddenly threw the baby who she held in her hands, out of the ninth floor window," police said in a statement.
One of the officers ran downstairs and called doctors, but it was too late.
