Children thrown from 5th floor by their father: “I clapped my hands to keep them awake”, says a neighbor

On July 6, 2024, a man threw his two children, aged two and five, out of a window before ending his life in Paris. A neighbor recounts the nightmare.

The two children are in dire need. This Saturday, the bodies of three people were found at the bottom of a building after a fall from the fifth floor.

At around 8:30 p.m., a 48-year-old father threw his children, aged two and five years out of the window before himself jumping from the fifth floor of this building located in the fourteenth arrondissement of Paris.

If the man died, the two minors were able to be transported – with a vital prognosis engaged – to intensive care. This, thanks to the first aid provided by a neighbor, witness to this whole scene of horror. She tells the Parisian.

“She tells me that François hit her”

This neighbor, Céline, says she was alerted by the screams of her neighbor upstairs, the wife of the forty-year-old. After seeing that she had been hit in the nose, Céline rushed to the bottom of the building to come to the aid of the two children: “It’s Grace. Her nose is bloody. It’s running down her chest. She tells me that François hit her, then threw the children out the window before jumping out himself.”she explains to our colleagues.

Céline knows first aid and knows that they must not fall asleep, especially if they have multiple trauma.

“I was trying to get the grass out of their noses.”

Local residents quoted by our colleagues from Parisian describe a scene of horror: “They had their heads crushed on the ground. The father, on the asphalt. The children, on the lawn.”

Arriving downstairs, the neighbor started “on all fours between the two children”spoke to them “each in turn, to reassure them”The mother arrives in turn and begins to panic.

“I was clapping my hands, to keep them awake. I was trying to get the grass out of their noses and mouths.”The children, very silent, remained lucid until help arrived, Céline told the Parisian.

“Jealousy issues”

According to neighbors, the father of the family, François, was a rather “reserve” et “closed” who often looked after his children. A month ago the 5-year-old broke his femur at the park while he was in his care.

Another neighbor close to the couple revealed that the two lovers were at the end of their relationship even though they were planning to get married. Although they never argued, there were still “jealousy issues. François suspected she was cheating on him”the woman explained.

The child protection brigade has been notified. A medical-psychological emergency unit has been opened.
