Baby dies after mum loses balance in high heels and ‘drops him from balcony’

A six-month-old baby fell to his death after his mum lost her balance in high heels and ‘dropped him from a balcony’.

Femida Shaikh had been attending a wedding with her son Mohammed and was not able to walk properly in her footwear, according to local media.

The 23-year-old lost her balance and dropped Mohammed – who reportedly suffered spinal injuries and died before he could be taken to hospital.

The wedding was taking place in the city of Kalyan near Mumbai in India.

Some reports say that he fell from a balcony, while others say the tragic tot, from nearby Ulhasnagar, had been dropped from the stairs.


Police were called to the scene and later ruled out any foul play, ruling the baby’s death an accident.

“The woman and her relatives have narrated the incident.

“We have registered an Accidental Death Report in the matter and handed over the body to the family.”
