One child died and another one was severely injured after a balcony in Liège collapsed on Tuesday night, according to reports.

Both children fell with the balcony, which belonged to a house in the Bressoux area of the Walloon city when it collapsed at around 22:00 on Tuesday.

Emergency services arrived at the scene of the incident in Rue du Moulin and both children —whose ages are not yet known— were rushed to the hospital.

One of the children succumbed to his injuries while the other remains in hospital in a serious condition, according to Le Soir.
