A baby died when a family of 12 leapt from their second floor balcony in Paris claiming they were fleeing the devil.

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

The baffling 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 were watching television. One woman grabbed a knife and stabbed the man before others pushed him out through the front door.

More here.

Uh, the most fitting Darwin Award ever?

It wasn’t the baby’s fault that he was born into a stupid family. That is such a sad story.

No one said the Darwin award was pretty - getting it out the gene pool… the sins of the father are visited upon the children.

Wow.  I kept thinking of that scene in SLC Punk! where the guy takes like 100 hits of acid and chases his mom around the house with a knife thinking she’s the devil.  When Stevo shows up he’s crouched on a chair in the middle of his yard, which he thinks is water, and he thinks Stevo is Jesus.
