Morning around 10am Gagana, the second child of Venkatesh and Suma, was playing unaccompanied on the terrace of her house. 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.
