The death of a 16-year-old student in a senior middle school in the Chenghua district of Chengdu, Sichuan province, on Sunday, which happened to be Mother's Day, was not a criminal case, and the family had no objection to it.

Lin, a second-year student at the school, died from falling to the ground from a building of the Chengdu No 49 Middle School, said the Chenghua district branch of the Chengdu Municipal Public Security Bureau in an online post on Tuesday evening.

After receiving the report that the student fell at 6:49 pm and perished, police immediately arrived at the scene. After an on-site investigation, visiting relevant people, accessing the surveillance video and an autopsy, police found that the student died from his fall from the building, and that a criminal case was excluded, the post said.

The student's family had no objection to the result of the investigation, it said.
