An Indian woman jumped to her death from the eight floor of a building an hour after her husband died, leaving their six year old child behind on Tuesday.

According to Noida police, the husband Anurag Aggarwal 39, was taken to hospital following complaints of chest pain in the afternoon. However, he died of a heart attack at 2 a.m.

Just an hour after, his wife, 36-year-old Monica Aggarwal dived from the eight floor of their apartment building.

She was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

A guard who works at the apartment explained, “ the wife did not accept that her husband died and was not willing to leave his body. The family brought her back to the flat. We think she locked the balcony door from outside before she jumped.”

Neighbours say they do not know who will take care of the deceased couple’s little girl because her grandparents are very old.
