Japan: Baby survives 10-story fall after dad tries to kill him

A 1-year-old boy survived a 10-story fall from a Tokyo apartment building Thursday after his disturbed father allegedly tossed him out a window in the morning, police said.

The baby survived after landing on shrubbery and escaped with slight facial cuts. His father, Shingo Hashimoto, 37, was then arrested at the Koto Ward property after calling the police to confess.

"I tried to kill my son. I tried to strangle him with my hands and dropped him" out of my bedroom window at 9 a.m., the police quoted the company employee as saying.
