MOSCOW, July 6 /TASS/. A fox terrier that fell down from the 7th floor of a Moscow apartment block together with its 16-year-old owner has been taken to a vet clinic unconscious. The girl was rushed to hospital in serious condition, investigators said.
"Doctors are fighting for her life," Yulia Ivanova, the head of the main investigative department of the Russian Investigation Committee, told TASS on Monday.
The incident took place on Biryulyovksaya Street in southern Moscow. Passers-by discovered the young girl and the dog lying in the street at 05:30 on Monday morning.
Police said they had detained a man who had thrown the girl and her pet out of the window.
"According to investigators, a 35-year-old man pushed a young girl who was under age (born 1999) out of the window on the 7th floor after a quarrel caused by personal dislike. After that, the man who continued behaving aggressively seized the dog and threw it out of the window," an investigator said.
Moscow investigators have initiated criminal proceedings against the man on charges of homicide attempt and cruelty to animals. "The man has been detained and is being questioned to establish the motive behind his actions. Charges will be brought against him soon. After that, he will be taken into custody," a representative of the State Investigative Department said.
