The incident took place in Barra locality in Kanpur, India, on Wednesday evening.
Anita Raj Singh, a senior health official, had developed a kidney ailment and was unwell since past few months. She was undergoing treatment at a city hospital, where she breathed her last on Wednesday.
According to her son Tejas, her body was brought home form the hospital and their dog, Jaya, started barking and wailing. The dog then went upstairs and jumped off the fourth floor.
"We rushed her to a veterinary hospital, but she was declared brought dead. Her backbone had fractured," Tejas said.
He said that the dog was depressed ever since his mother was admitted to hospital and almost stopped eating.
The family buried the dog near their house soon after Anita Raj Singh's cremation on Thursday.
Tejas said that his mother had found the dog in a pitiable condition about 12 years ago.
"Jaya was infested with maggots and my mother brought her home. She treated the dog and Jaya soon became a member of the family," he said. The family is trying to cope with the double tragedy.
