Bengaluru: Visit to Lalbaugh Botanical Garden turned fatal for a six-year-old boy from Bengaluru who died soon after a granite bird bath fell over him and soon after his death, the grieving family made up a very bold decision of donating his organs.

The deceased is Vikram, only son of N Kumar (36), an employee at a power loon and Revathi (29), a home-maker. He was the student of Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan BBMP School, pursuing his first grade.

It is said that on Monday afternoon, Vikram had gone to the park with his aunt, grandmother and three cousins. After three-hour long stroll in the park, Vikram urged his cousin to click his pictures. Soon, Vikram went up and sat on a bird bath for a picture. Unfortunately, the pillar on which the bowl was mounted fell killing Vikram.

While a six-year-old boy remained bleeding on the ground, people who gathered around remained filming and clicking pictures of the gory incident. It was only after a staff at the garden arrived that Vikram was flown to hospital- later to Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences.

According to Siddapura police, a case of unnatural death was registered in connection with the incident and that no case of negligence has been booked against horticulture officials in charge of the gardens.

In August last year, a seven-year-old girl died in a bee attack near Kempegowda Tower at Lalbagh.
