A 38-year-old Myanmar national is alleged to have hurled his three children off the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) in Kepong today, before falling to his death.
According to a statement by Sentul district police chief ACP Beh Eng Lai, the man and two of the children died on the spot.
Another child was admitted to Selayang Hospital for treatment and is in critical condition.
It is understood that the three children involved were an eight-year-old girl and two boys of an unknown age. No further details have been released by the police at the time of writing.
Beh said that the police received a report on the incident at about 5.50am today, made by a 36-year-old witness.
“A witness saw the man walking with the kids. He was carrying one of the boys and was holding the other two.
“When the witness approached them, the man suddenly took the boy in his arm and threw him before doing the same with the other two.
“The man then jumped off the flyover,” Beh said.
He said the man and two of the children died on the spot, while the one he was holding in his arm sustained serious injuries after he landed on a bush by the roadside.
All three bodies were brought to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital Forensic Unit for a post-mortem.
The case is being investigated for murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
The police urged those with information to contact investigating officer ASP Baldev Singh Gurdial Singh at 012-480 6062 or the Sentul police operations room at 03-4048 2222.
The man and the girl both had UNHCR identity cards. She was believed to be the eldest of the three, Beh said.
Doctors estimated the injured victim to be around five years old. He is now receiving treatment at the Selayang Hospital Intensive Care Unit, Beh added.
