MOSCOW —A mother hurled her two young sons to their deaths from a 15th-floor window, claiming she was “fed up with children”.
The boys, aged four and seven, were dead before paramedics could reach them.
Galina Ryabkova, 30, seen afterward on CCTV footage showing no emotion whatsoever, said they were now “angels in heaven”.
She told neighbors who restrained her until police arrived: “I threw them away.”
One neighbor, Tatiana Gumanyova, revealed: “I was standing near the window and I heard a loud smack. Then I heard one more smack.”
Police are probing claims Ryabkova suspected her husband of an affair.
He was away on business at the time but locals said they appeared to be a “successful family”.
She will be observed by a team of psychiatrists during the investigation into Sunday’s deaths in Dolgoprudny, near Moscow, Russia. — Agencies
