A thirteen year old boy fell to his death Wednesday morning in Holon from a balcony on the sixth floor of his family's apartment building in the city, Tel Aviv police reported.

Police were quick to tell reporters that foul play is not suspected in the incident, which is being treated as an accident.

Police said that Rafael Tahan fell sometime overnight, and was discovered by worshipers arriving for morning prayers at the synagogue next to the building.
