A 45-year-old woman has rushed with her seven-year-old daughter in her arms from the fifth floor of a building located on Avenida de Los Telares in Avilés. The fall, police sources inform EL MUNDO, “could have been partly cushioned by a vehicle that was parked on the street.”

Mother and daughter have been transferred to the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA). The mother, the aforementioned sources report, has been admitted with serious injuries and “her condition is critical.” The girl, awaiting further medical assessment, has minor injuries and some fractures.

Subsequently, in another house in the same building, number 38 on Los Telares street, the mother of the woman who fell, and therefore the girl’s grandmother, was found with self-inflicted injuries to her arms. The maternal grandmother, who lives in the same portal, has tried to cut her veins and has been transferred to the San Agustín Hospital. The injuries, reports the National Police, are minor and her life is not in danger.

According to El Comercio, the 45-year-old woman, whose identity has not been revealed, had filed several complaints against her ex-partner for gender violence that the Justice had filed, returning the visitation regime to the parent.

This could have been the reason that hours before the fall from the fifth floor, at dawn, the girl’s maternal grandfather and the father “engaged in an incident with knives,” according to police sources. The grandfather would have thus violated the restraining order that he has with respect to the parent, since the confrontation took place at the home of the minor’s father.

Both were injured and both are in custody. The grandfather was transferred to the Central University Hospital of Asturias, where he is in police custody. The father, for his part, was referred to the San Agustín Hospital, where he was treated for the minor injuries he suffered and is also detained.

The National Police was not aware of any restraining order of the husband with respect to the mother.

According to what some workers who were in the street at the time of the events told El Comercio, the girl would have shouted “Mom!, don’t throw me away”, before the woman presumably jumped with her into the void.

The event, which took place at 10:20 a.m., is being investigated by agents of the scientific and judicial police.
