New York, United States – On Sunday, Dmitriy Kanarikov, 35, a New York-based Ukrainian systems analyst, took his 3-year-old son Kirill into the 52-story apartment building in Manhattan, tossed him some 46 stories, and then jumped to his own death.
The paramedics responded moments later. Kanarikov was pronounced dead at the scene, but little Kirill Kanarikov was still alive. He was rushed to the hospital which is directly across the street from the back of the building; however, he died in the emergency room.
Kirill was three years old
It was learnt that the boy’s parents were in the middle of a contested divorce, and that the mother had been awarded custody pending a trial scheduled to commence on January 17. The father, a systems analyst originally from Ukraine and now residing in Brooklyn, was allowed to spend part of the weekend with Kirill.

Happy family: Svetlana, Dmitriy and their Kirill
“We’re here to support our sister and please respect our privacy,” the mother’s brother Egor Bukharin told reporters.
Svetlana Bucharina, Kirill’s mom, graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology where she studied advanced mathematics and took part in research presentations. She is a member of the National Mathematics Honor Society, and a musician.
She married Dmitriy in 2009. The couple separated in 2012, but as recently as September, Kanarikov had made apparent attempts to make things right in his relations. He wrote that month on his Facebook page: “I want to be the best dad and husband. Nothing is more important to me right now.”
He left no note explaining his actions.
Kanarikov’s body is wheeled away by the Medical Examiner’s office after detectives finished examining the crime scene Sunday. Police say Kanarikov died instantly when he landed on a nearby building
