Accused of attempted murder for throwing a minor from the Tate Modern

A 17-year-old has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly throwing a six-year-old boy from the tenth floor of the Tate Modern museum of modern art in London, according to the Metropolitan Police of the British capital.

The defendant will appear in the Bromley Youth court on Tuesday and, according to the same source, there is no link between the victim and the attacker.

The little affected is French and was spending a few days in London with the family.

His condition is critical, but he is stable, after he fell this Sunday from the tenth floor and was found on the terrace of the fifth floor.

The emergency services received a warning about 1:40 p.m. GMT on Sunday, after which they appeared in the well-known museum.

The Tate Modern opened its doors in 2000 in a building that formerly housed a power plant on the banks of the well-known River Thames.

Since then it is one of the best known and busiest places in the London capital and was the most popular tourist attraction in the United Kingdom in 2018 with 5.9 million visitors, according to official figures.
