Fall from window kills baby

A toddler fell from a 12th-floor window to her death in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district yesterday, police said.

The 2-year-old girl is believed to have been playing with her mother’s iPad while sitting next to the open window at about 11am, according to police.

Khan Khuntith, police chief in Boeng Kak II commune, said that the child, identified as Souza Aliesrachel Bulk, was the daughter of Russian and Brazilian nationals.

Her father, Gerrit Bulk, owns a fabrics business here, Khuntith added, while her mother, Brazilian Ana Paula Brasileira, is a teacher.

Khuntith said police investigators had immediately opened an investigation and quickly pieced together the tragedy, determining that the girl had been playing near the open window while her mother was busy elsewhere in the apartment.

“The child fell down and broke her face and head" and died immediately, he said. "We could not help her in time,” .
