THE mother of the three-year-old boy who died after falling from his family’s flat in Coin yesterday has been detained by police.

The woman is reportedly considered a flight risk and was arrested following a denuncia filed by her parents, the child’s maternal grandparents.

The toddler died after falling nearly 10 meters into an interior patio at his family’s home in Coin around noon yesterday.

He died within minutes and his mother was arrested hours later.

She is scheduled to appear in court today (Thursday).

The Coin Town Hall suspended yesterday’s scheduled Feria activities in order to observe a day of mourning for the child.
