Chennai/ Coimbatore: The mother of the seven-month-old girl, who had miraculously escaped after falling off the fourth floor of an apartment, died by suicide following a raging cyber attack.
The deceased, Ramya (33), wife of Venkatesh from Thiruvarur, was found hanging at her residence. The woman, who had been undergoing treatment for depression, was an employee of an IT company.

On April 28, the infant had slipped from Ramya’s grasp while she was feeding it on the balcony of her apartment. The incident occurred at the VGN Stafford apartment in Thirumullavayal near Avadi. The child got stuck on a metal sheet above the parapet of the first floor for over 15 minutes. Though it seemed in danger of falling to the ground, some neighbours who witnessed the incident climbed onto the roof and caught hold of the child. Despite the fall, the infant sustained no injuries.

After a video of the episode went viral on social media, Ramya was subjected to a severe online attack, sources said. After being blamed by her relatives for the child's fall, she fell into depression and was undergoing treatment.
Ramya and her two children (five-year-old son and seven-month-old girl) had returned to her house in Karamadai near Mettupalayam two weeks ago. She was found hanging at the house when her parents and husband Venkatesh returned home after attending a wedding.
