The joy of flying kite turned tragic for a 10-year-old boy who fell from a residential complex in Madhapur and died on Wednesday afternoon.

Police said Kumakula Nikhil, son of Janardhan, who was flying kite from the terrace of a four-storey building, was standing on the edge and fell to the ground.

“The incident took place around 3 p.m. when the boy with friends went to the nearby building for flying kites. After falling, Nikhil suffered severe head injury and was rushed to a nearby hospital. From there he was shifted to Kondapur government hospital where he was declared brought dead,” police said.
