RCMP and the BC Coroners Service are investigating after a child fell multiple stories from an apartment building at 3771 Bartlett Court in Burnaby Saturday afternoon.

An information officer with RCMP says the victim died on impact. It's unclear if the child fell from a window or a balcony and from what floor.

The building has 21 storeys.

Officials have also not yet made public the age or gender of the victim.

Sgt. Dale Carr says the fall was most likely accidental.

"It's not unheard of where children lean up against a window that is open and they lean against a screen and then fall," he said.

"That's a very common occurrence, [it] happens more at the beginning of summer, but certainly not beyond the realm of possibilities in this instance as well."

Meawhile neighbours in the area say they're stunned by the tragedy.

"It's pretty horrible actually, to find out a kid fell," said Russell Bergquist. "Like there's a lot of families in here, a lot of young kids, and it's just awful."
