Girl, 3, dies after falling from 8th floor window while searching for her nan

A young girl fell eight storey to her death after falling through an open window when she became separated from her grandmother.

The three-year-old was captured on CCTV getting into a lift ahead of her elderly grandmother when its doors closed suddenly and she was left alone.

In images recorded last Friday in the Chinese city of Zhuzhou, the girl is seen briefly panicking before hitting buttons inside the lift and eventually exiting on the eighth floor.

Changsha Television reported the toddler came across a 36inch high corridor window before falling from the building.

Family members told the TV station that they were visiting the girl’s grandmother on her birthday.

An unnamed male relative added: “We heard a loud thud on the ground. When we ran over to look, she had already fallen from the window.
