Make-up shop assistant arrested for throwing ‘friend’s baby daughter to her death’ from the 13th floor of tower block

A MAKE-UP shop assistant has been arrested after she allegedly "threw a friend's baby" from the 13th floor of a Moscow skyscraper, police say.

A distressing video shows how the two-month old tot was found dead after falling 130ft from a high rise block in the Russian capital on Friday. 

A woman identified as Daria Shavelkina, 30, was held by police as a murder case was opened, reported Moskovsky Komsomolets and Mash citing law enforcement sources.

Shavelkina visited her friend Yaroslava Korolyova, 30, to collect a maternity bandage, according to reports.

But while Yaroslava went to another room in her flat, the baby girl was thrown from the window of the apartment.

The appalling incident occurred in the district of New Moscow, situated near Vnukovo International Airport, at around 11.30am local time.

Eyewitnesses say Yaroslava rushed downstairs, but found her baby motionless in the spot.

Paramedics pronounced the child dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, Yaroslava was “in deep shock” and required medical assistance following the tragic incident.

According to reports, Shavelkina - who is married and is said to be expecting a child - had worked as a Clarins cosmetics consultant.
