Sheepshead Resident Dmitriy Kanarikov Throws Three-Year-Old Son From Building Before Taking His Own Life
A father threw his toddler son off the roof of a 52-story Manhattan building on Sunday before also leaping. Both were pronounced dead on the scene.
The father was a resident of Sheepshead Bay and had recently gone through a bitter divorce, according to the Associated Press.
Dmitriy Kanarikov, 35, landed on 425 West 59th Street and his son’s body landed on 455 West 59th Street, according to an article by DNAinfo.
Kanarikov picked up his son, Kirill Kanarikov, Sunday morning at the NYPD’s 17th Precinct in Manhattan. He was supposed to return his son to the boy’s mother that same day but instead went to the roof of a relative’s building just before noon, where he took his fatal plunge.
Kanarikov’s Facebook features photos of the family on a beach. In one of the pictures, the father is carrying his ex-wife in his arms and in another the sand is imprinted with the father, mother and son’s feet.
