Man, child fall to deaths from New York City apartment building

New York
Police: Man, child die in building jump

A man involved in a custody dispute apparently threw his 3-year-old son off the roof of a 52-story New York City apartment building before jumping to his death, police said.

Police said they received an emergency call reporting two jumpers from the Manhattan building about noon Sunday. Officers found Dmitriy Kanarikov, 35, and his son on the lower rooftops of two nearby buildings.

The Brooklyn man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his son, Kirill Kanarikov, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Officials said the boy’s mother had custody of the child. They said the father had visiting rights and was supposed to hand the boy over to the mother at a police precinct Sunday afternoon.

Police said the father did not live in the building, South Park Tower on West 60th Street. The building is a short distance from Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center.

Calif. city helps replace soldier’s stolen gifts: An Army corporal on leave from his third tour in Afghanistan will be able to give his family the Christmas he wanted, thanks to the generosity of a Northern California city. KCRA-TV in Sacramento reports that residents, firefighters and police officers in Lodi gave gifts and cash Saturday to replace the thousands of dollars’ worth of presents that robbers took from Cpl. Chris Petrossian’s home. Petrossian was still in Afghanistan when his wife called to tell him about the break-in. An iPad and a digital camera were among the gifts he had ordered online and shipped home.

Dog back home after five years: A dog that wandered away from its owner in South Florida five years ago is back home. Jessica Namath, the daughter of former New York Jets football star Joe Namath, lost her Shih Tzu mix named Tula in a Jupiter yard five years ago. Michael Cecere of St. Petersburg, who found Tula, took the dog to an animal hospital, where a tracking chip was found. He found a phone number for Namath through Facebook.
