A dad hanged himself and his 11-month-old daughter live on Facebook after a row with his girlfriend.

Wuttisan Wongtalay, 20, accused Jiranuch Trirat, 21, of cheating on him before disappearing with their child Beta yesterday. He climbed to the top of the building with the child before beginning a Facebook live stream. Harrowing footage showed Mr Wongtalay climb down the side of the building to retrieve the dying infant’s body before killing himself.

Shockingly, the girl’s mum saw the video on Facebook and made a frantic call to police. The bodies were later recovered by emergency service workers. The murder-suicide was carried out in Sakoo, south of Phuket International Airport, Thailand, late yesterday afternoon. Lieutenant Colonel Sanit Nookhong, from the Royal Thai Police, said the murder-suicide was “an act of jealousy” and the girl’s mum is being consoled by family and friends.
