Woman pushes autistic son out from 9th floor
The mother of two had been suffering from a major depressive disorder that impaired her mental responsibility and actions. She thought that her autistic seven-year-old son was the cause of her problems and that he had to go.
On Sept 2014, she got him to stand on a stool by the kitchen window of their Tampines flat and pushed him out. This act was witnessed by a maid at a neighboring block.
With that, the boy fell nine storeys to his death.
Yesterday, the 43-year-old mother was jailed five years for one count of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
Neither she nor her son can be named due to a gag order issued in 2014.
