A 8-year-old child died on Saturday after a concrete block from an apartment project in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, fell on his head while he was walking with two friends. 

Central Jakarta Police chief Sr. Comr. Roma Hutajalu said on Monday that the victim suffered a head injury.

The two friends had shouted for help from residents and the victim was rushed to a hospital where he died after losing too much blood, kompas.com reported.
