A 5-year-old boy died of injuries from a suspected fall early Wednesday at an apartment complex in the city of Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province. A resident found him in bloodied state on the road in front of the apartment at around 2 a.m. and reported the situation to the police. The boy was taken to the hospital but did not survive.
The police found no direct signs of abuse on the boy’s body. They suspect that he accidentally fell from the 12th floor, where he lived with his mother.
