Suma heard Gagana calling to her from above, and looked up to see her daughter leaning over the railing of the terrace. By the time a fear-struck Suma could run up to the terrace, the Gagana had fallen from the building and crashed to the ground. Venkatesh, a garment factory employee, said, "I was outside when I got a call from my house owner. I rushed back home and by then, they had taken Gagana to St Martha's Hospital."

Neighbor said that Gagana fell in front of a passerby whose screams alerted everyone. Gagana had severe injuries to her head and body and was rushed to a nearby hospital and then to St Martha's.
