A mother has been investigated by the police after throwing her children off a seventh floor balcony in Jeddah earlier this week.
Two of the girls died at the scene and a third girl is in the hospital with serious injuries
A local news site, Twasul news, reported that the two girls who died at the scene were aged 5 and 8-years-old, while their surviving sister is 7.
Police and paramedics rushed to the scene minutes after the incident was reported by neighbours and the mother was detained.
She has now been referred for a mental status examination.
