Mother jumps to her death with two kids in her arms

A mother allegedly jumped almost 200ft to her death with her newborn baby and toddler son in her arms, killing both children, say police.

Olga Zharkova, 34, and her two sons, aged three and one month, died in the fall from a 19th floor flat in Moscow, where detectives have launched a murder investigation.

The mother-of-two is suspected to have suffered from acute postnatal depression before taking her own life and killing her children in the 190ft fall, say investigators.

Olga had complained that her husband was away from home for long periods on his military duties, say reports citing law enforcement.

The Russian Investigative Committee opened a murder probe into the deaths of the two children.

A “postmortem psychiatric analysis” will be conducted on the mother, said reports.
