Bengaluru: An 18-year-old girl lost her life after falling off the second floor of a mall in Bengaluru on Saturday, May 21.

Her male friend, who also fell with her, broke his leg.

The incident took place in the 5th Avenue Mall on Brigade Road in Cubbon Park police station limits. The deceased girl has been identified as Lia, while her male friend has been identified as Chris Peter.

The victim was a resident of Cox town while her friend lives in HAL. Both were doing their second year in commerce at Siant Joseph’s College in Bengaluru.

They had come to the mall for shopping with their friends. According to preliminary information, while climbing the stairs, the girl allegedly slipped and fell from the second floor.
