The man threw his own child out of a window in New York City and then jumped.

According to, the man, Dmitriy Kanarikov, 35, was fighting a custody battle over his 3-year-old son, Kirill Kanarikov, and decided to throw his son out of a 52-storey Manhattan apartment building on West 60th Street.

He then jumped to his own death.

The boy was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead, says the New York Post.

"What a horrible, horrible incident. That toddler didn't stand a chance. The father wanted to hurt the mother any way he could and this is what he did for revenge," says Katie Adler of San Francisco.

Although Kanarikov did not himself live in the building, the New York Post has reported that a friend may possibly have lived there.
