    Gang Member Allegedly Planned Hit With Smuggled Phone

    A 3-year-old boy thrown to his death from a 52-story Manhattan apartment building by his father was mourned Thursday at his funeral.

    Kirill Kanarikov died Sunday after his father tossed him from the building and then jumped, according to police.

    The father had split from the boy's mother in August. He was supposed to have taken him for a short visit that day.

    One family friend said outside the funeral in Manhattan Thursday that the family is "devastated."
