A 38-year-old father has been charged with attempted murder after he threw his 6-month-old daughter off the roof! 

The man climbed up his shack with his daughter in his hands as he threatened the police officers to drop her child down from there. This incident took place in Kwadwesi, near Port Elizabeth on South Africa’s eastern cape coast, in an attempt to protest against the demolishment of his illegal shack.

The guy suspended his daughter from her legs and dangled her from the roof while trying to negotiate with the police.

Other protesters in the town were chanting ‘throw, throw, throw..‘ while the little girl was swinging over the end of the rooftop, screaming at the top of her lungs. A policeman raced to the rooftop trying to save the child.

First, he tried to bargain with the father. When that failed, he tried to grab the man in an effort to save the girl but the guy threw his baby right away!
