Teens killed in Deptford balcony fall named as Miguel Ramos and Anastasia Tutik
Students were spotted kissing on the edge of a sixth floor balcony in London
The two teenagers who died after falling off a balcony in a luxury apartment block while kissing have been identified as Miguel Ramos, the son of a Mexican politician, and Russian student Anastasia Tutik.
The pair plunged to their deaths from a sixth floor balcony in Deptford, south east London, and were pronounced dead at the scene in what police described as a "tragic accident".
The 18-year old Miguel, a Mexican citizen, had only been in London for a week and was planning to study English in the UK during the summer. The 19-year old Anastasia was an A-Level student at the £35,000-a-year Bellerbys College in Deptford. Her friends described her as a “top student”.
Residents at the Knights Tower said the two had been "kissing" and "frolicking" on the edge of the balcony when the incident took place just after midnight. A group of friends had been partying to celebrate the end of their exams. Anastasia and Miguel had only just met earlier that night.
"They were trying to have sex on the balcony," Samson Oguntayo, 32, who lives in a neighbouring block, "The guy was lifting the girl and putting her on the bannister, he kept on doing it. You could see they were doing some really dangerous stuff."
Another witness said Anastasia slipped and pulled Miguel with her. The two fell together and were surrounded by a pool of blood.
It is understood the families are now on their way to the UK. Miguel's father, Miguel Lozano Munguia, is a high profile politician in Mexico where he served as mayor of Pesqueria, Nuevo Leon, for the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Anastasia's parents currently live in Russia.
