Baby Dies, 10 Injured 'Fleeing The Devil'

PARIS, France - A baby died when family of 12 leaped from their second floor balcony in France claiming they were fleeing the devil yesterday morning.

Eight more people were injured, some seriously, in the bizarre tragedy when they jumped 20ft in to a car park in Paris suburb of La Verriere.

The incident occurred when a wife woke to see her husband moving about naked in the room, police said.

She began screaming 'it's the devil! it's the devil!', and the man ran into the other room where 11 others adults and children watching television.

One woman grabbed a knife and stabbed the man before other family members pushed him out through the front door.

When the man forced his way back in, they all began screamed in terror and leapt from the balcony screaming 'Jesus! Jesus!' 

The naked man also leapt from the balcony after them, detectives said.

A four-month old baby died in his mother's arms, while a two-year-old was critically injured.

Police said they had found no evidence of hallucinogenic drugs being used or any signs of unusual religious rituals.

Versailles assistant prosecutor Odile Faivre said: 'The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday when a group of 11 people were watching television in an apartment.

'A wife in the next room saw her husband moving around naked and began screaming that he was the devil.

'In the confusion following this apparent case of mistaken identity, the naked man's sister-in-law stabbed him in the hand and he was ejected through the front door of the flat.  

'When he attempted to get back in, panic erupted and the other occupants of the flat fled by jumping out of the window.

'A baby died and seven of those who jumped were taken to hospital, some with multiple injuries.  

'A number of points surrounding this incident remain to be cleared up.'
