New York Police Department officers police walk in front of a high-rise apartment building where they said a 35-year-old man and a 3-year-old child died after plummeting from the building in New York.

A 35-year-old man threw his three-year-old son from a 52-story Manhattan apartment on Sunday following a custody dispute with the boy’s mother, the AP reports.

According to police, the father, Dmitriy Kanarikov, had visiting rights that enabled him to see his child, but he was supposed to hand the boy over to the mother at a police precinct on Sunday.

Kanarikov was pronounced dead at the scene, while the son, Kirill Kanarikov, was later declared dead at a local hospital.

If he wanted to kill himself , that is fine jump you coward no one cares. But to throw your own child out a window is a non-loving father, selfish man with a demented mind. I can not imagine what that little boy went through as he was falling to his death. The mother of this child is going through an unbearable time.
