A two-year-old boy was found next to the corpses of his parents two days after his father killed his mother with an ax in Ukraine.
Auto mechanic Andriy Demyanchuk  attacked his family in their rented flat in the city of Zaporizhia in the Zaporizhia Oblast region of southern Ukraine.

Demyanchuk then made two slings that hung himself and his son on the ceiling simultaneously.
He put the slings around their necks while standing in a chair and held the child in his arms.
Then the father pushed the chair away with his leg.
Fortunately for the boy, his noose was big enough for him to slip out and escape death when his father died, the police said.
The toddler spent the next two days in the flat with his deceased parents.
The child was so scared that he couldn't cry while sitting by the corpses, the neighbors said.

The boy was found after his relatives, who could not reach the family over the phone, alarmed the police.
A witness said to local media: & When officers penetrated the flat, they saw the mother lying on the floor and the father hanging on the abyss.
& # 39; The frightened child sat with his deceased parents and nibbled on a piece of bread. & # 39;
The boy was taken to the hospital in shock. He now receives all necessary medical care.
Natalia Syvorashka spokeswoman for local authorities said: & The child is in shock. He suffered a serious psychological trauma. He is afraid.
& # 39; Forensics have found rope markers in the boy's neck. & # 39;
Olena was reportedly butchered for their two-year-old son with an ax
The police launched a criminal case about murder and suicide. The bodies of the parents were taken for further forensic investigation.
According to the police, the wives recently had financial problems and their relationship was tense.
The situation was exacerbated by the fact that the man was jealous of his wife.
He constantly accused her of being unfaithful and they argued, the neighbors said.
Doctors say the toddler's life is not in danger, but he will need professional therapy and counseling to restore his mental well-being.
The boy's grandmother is in the hospital with him. She is expected to have custody of the child.
The investigation is ongoing.
