Teenager in custody after child thrown from 10th floor at Tate Modern

A teenager is in custody on suspicion of attempted murder after a six-year-old boy was thrown from a 10th-floor viewing platform at the Tate Modern art gallery in London.

The victim is in a London hospital after being found on a fifth-floor roof, the Metropolitan Police said.

A police spokesman told PA that the child is β€œno longer in a life-threatening situation”.

β€œHe is critical, but stable,” the spokesman added.

The 17-year-old male suspect had remained with members of the public on the 10th-floor viewing platform after the incident on Sunday afternoon, the force said.
