The woman, a 37-year-old with the surname He, became manic at around 7am.

She reportedly got into a fight with her mother-in-law and injured her with a kitchen knife during the altercation.

After that, she threw her three-year-old son outside the window, resulting in his demise.

Citing multiple Chinese news reports, 8world News noted that He then tried to throw the other child down as well, but the latter was thankfully unhurt.

Neighbours and relatives purportedly said that He had been displaying “abnormal” behaviour recently.

Police have since arrested He and investigations are ongoing.
