HONG KONG (AP) _ A mentally ill Hong Kong man, clutching his 6-year-old son, jumped from the 26th floor of an apartment building, newspapers and police said Monday. The man and his son died.

The 37-year-old father was found dead Sunday. His son was unconscious and died later in a hospital, police spokeswoman Anita Chow said.

Newspapers reported Monday that the man was clutching his son when he jumped. One Hong Kong daily said the man became increasingly depressed after his wife divorced him three years ago.
