A four-year-old boy fell to his death from his family's 16th-floor flat in Tin Shui Wai while his mother and sister were asleep early yesterday. Police were investigating whether the death was a result of neglect, but no arrests had been made. Initial investigation showed the boy probably fell after losing his balance while standing on a bucket to unlock a grille of a balcony window at about 12.15am, police said.
