The tragedy it happened this afternoon in Coln al 1800 (Mar del Plata), when a minor fell from the sixth floor and hit the ground in the inner courtyard of a building. Soon ambulances arrived, the prosecutor on duty -Leandro Arvalo- and the Scientific Police.
The victim is Catherine Paz Monzani, 11 years old. At the door of the building -which is in the macrocenter of the seaside resort- there were moments of big pain when some relatives of the deceased showed up.
It is believed that the little I was not visiting the seaside resort. According to preliminary information, it was a family from Mar del Plata.
One of the hypotheses is that in a slight distraccin of adults, and for reasons that are being investigated, the girl approached a window and rushed forward.
Unfortunately, the falls of balconies and windows they are not rare in seaside towns. Three years ago, an Argentine boy fell from 8 meters into a building in Punta del Este (Uruguay) and lost his life in a similar way to that of Catalina Paz.
And that’s not to mention the fearful balconying, a practice that causes deaths every summer in Europe. With the aggravation that those who carry it out are usually alcoholic adults who “play” jumping between balconies or from a balcony to the pool of the hotels.
