A five-year-old boy fell to his death from his 19th-floor bedroom window after he was refused permission to watch the latest Spider-Man movie.
According to Indonesian media, the boy named only as Valentino, was in the bath on Thursday when he asked his mother, a 23-year-old woman named as Eva, if he could see the latest superhero film.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released in Indonesia on Wednesday and has been a smash hit, scoring the country's highest opening day box office figures of all time.
But the boy's mother said he could not go because his one-year-old brother Vincencius was ill and she wanted to visit the toddler at her mother's house, kompas.com reported. Senior police commander Suyudi told the website:
'This made Valentino very upset. He wanted to see the movie. After his request was declined, Valentino then rushed to his room and locked it from the inside. His mum went down to the second floor to ask for help from a caretaker, but while talking to him she heard a commotion outside.'

The Police say they were investigating the possibility that the boy had taken his own life or that he died mimicking his screen super hero.
