New Delhi: A Class XI student in Kolkata, Bengal, fell to her death when she was too distracted by Facebook and did not know what was happening around her.

On Tuesday morning at Netaji Nagar area in south Kolkata, Anushka Mondal of South Point School was checking her Facebook while sitting on the parapet of the terrace of her house when she slipped and fell.

While checking Facebook during the time of the incident could be deemed accidental, Anushka’s parents claim that their daughter was always addicted to social media and had been counselled multiple times.

Police conducting the investigation are trying to ascertain whether the death was truly caused by just mere distraction or outside influence.
