A new mum has been forgiven by the victim’s parents after allegedly throwing another woman’s baby to his death from a maternity ward window.
Reports say Viktoria Ivanova had only just given birth to a baby boy named Volodya, when Alina Araslanova allegedly walked over to her bed and grabbed her newborn in the Russian city of Sterlitamak.
Volodya hit the ground and died instantly on Monday, at not even a day old.
The alleged killer Araslanova has also given brith earlier in the evening to a second girl when staff witness her walking over to Viktoria’s bed.
Araslanova then allegedly picked up the Viktoria’s infant child, went over to a window and tossed him to his death for no apparent reason.
NTV reported that the mums were "lying on beds literally at arm's length from each other”.
The website explained: "The babies were brought in for feeding.
"When her roommate left, the woman [allegedly] grabbed her baby and threw it from the third floor.
"There are no bars on the windows. There was no one to prevent the tragedy."
Local media later reprove that Araslanova has previously spent some time in a psychiatric hospital for depression.

But she was released shortly before giving birth, as medics concluded she "did not pose a threat to others”.
The Investigative Directorate said: "At present, a number of investigative and operational measures has been started to establish all the circumstances of the crime, as well as the reasons and conditions that led to it.”
Volodya was the third son of Viktoria Ivanova and her husband, who was not identified.

The newborn’s father said in a statement: “It is our will with my wife that this woman is forgiven, we do not want to punish her.”
He added: " She should be allowed to live her life happily.
"We have accepted everything, we do not want anyone to be punished.”
Araslanova has since undergone a further psychiatric examination to decide whether she will be arrested or sent away for compulsory treatment.
Her children have been removed, and remain in the care of the authorities.
