A blow to the head was so strong that the child lost consciousness. Indifferent passers-by immediately called an ambulance, which took him to Bellevue Hospital Center. Doctors assessed the boy’s condition as serious but stable.

The causes of PE are investigated by the police. It is not excluded that the metal plate fell due to a strong gust of wind on Wednesday its speed in places reached 64 km/h.
