Lucia Brum Padilla and her two daughters recently died after she jumped from the 30th floor balcony of an apartment she shared she her boyfriend, Carlos Pinto. According to the Daily Mail, the distraught woman reportedly made the fatal leap following an argument with Pinto, who was also the children’s father.

He reportedly had to be sedated as a result of the shocking ordeal. Uruguayan ambassador Rodolfo Camarosano shared some details about the devastated father. He’s reportedly being monitored closely due to the trauma he suffered after watching his girlfriend and children leap from the balcony.
“We are in permanent contact with the father of the babies, with his brother and with the woman’s family in Uruguay. Mr Pinto is in a very bad state.”
