Teens Fall to Death From Balcony Mid-Kiss
Two students fell to their deaths after reportedly cuddling on a sixth-floor hotel balcony during a party and falling over the edge.
Witnesses reported that 19-year-old Anastasia Tutik and an 18-year-old known only as Miguel were embracing just before they lost their balance.
"They were trying to have sex on the balcony," Samson Oguntayo, a neighbor, said. "The guy was lifting the girl and putting her on the bannister, he kept on doing it."
Both Tutik and Miguel were students at Bellerbys College in London and were celebrating the end of finals.
“You see people on the balcony doing all sorts of things and I just felt they will probably go back inside,” Oguntayo said. “The last thing I expected was to see them falling down.”
When Oguntayo heard a loud noise, which some apartment-dwellers described as fireworks going off, he ran to the building to find both teens lying in a pool of blood.
Oguntayo dialed 999, but when paramedics arrived they were unable to save either teenager.
Flowers have since been placed at the foot of Knights Tower, where the two died, to honor their passings.
