A father was heard on the top of his voice ‘my son is dead’ after his six-year-old boy fell more than 150ft out of a kitchen window in a high-rise tower block.

What Happened?

Alam Makial, plunged from the 15th floor of Jacobs House on New City Road in Newham, east London, just after 6am.

Maryam Hadafow, the boy’s auntie who is an eye-witness, said: ‘[Alam] had got up before his parents and he fell from the kitchen window.

‘Akam’s father screamed for help shouting “My son, my son is dead”.

‘His mother had written emails about the windows and doors to the council five times and said this is not safe for my kids.’


Paying tribute to the six-year-old, Maryam added: ‘He was a lovely, lovely boy. He was very sweet.’

Eyewitness JJ, who lives on the 12th floor, three floors below the flat where the boy fell from, told Mailonline : ‘It was horrible. I felt so sorry for them. There was nothing that could be done.

‘I heard the screaming and shouting and I thought it was someone we probably had a lot to drink because that happens a lot down here. ‘

He said a female paramedic was in tears when she realised the boy had passed away.’

Another witness, Uber driver Miah, 57, added: ‘I am shocked and in disbelief.

‘I was across the road from where the boy fell. I thought it was somebody who was drunk.

‘It’s happened in front of my house. I could see the ambulance people and the police and they were trying to help him.’
