The boy, Jacopo, was playing on the balcony at his home in Arezzo, in Tuscany, when he lost his balance and fell three floors just after 10 pm.
He was rushed to the San Donato Hospital in Arezzo but was declared dead upon arrival.
A neighbor told Italian paper Corriere della Sera: “We heard a dull thud coming from the street, we looked out and saw the child’s body and then we heard the screams of the parents.”
Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
Paying tribute, Jacopo’s karate teacher Enzo Bertocci wrote on Facebook: “I imagine you happy, free, free to fly and run as you have not been able to do in these two months.
“I imagine you show other kids your best moves.”
