South African Dad Throws His Baby Off To Prevent His Building From Being Demolished



Today police rescued the life of a one year old toddler after the father of the child threw her from the roof of a shack structure during a demolition process conducted by the Nelson Mandela Metro Municipality in South Africa.

This followed after a demolition operation started in the Joe Slovo West area in Kwadwesi. SAPS and Metro Police were deployed to ensure the safety of the Metro Team doing the demolishing.

A 38-year-old man, climbed onto the roof of one of the structures and held his one year old girl in his hands. This he did to force the team not to demolish the structure. Due to the dangerous threat to the safety of the child, police set out a plan of rescue of the girl and to arrest the male.

After security operatives surrounded the structure and having an officer attempt to talk the man(father) down from the roof for a few minutes, the rescue attempt ensued. As the man was grabbed by police, he threw his child off the roof.

Fortunately, a member of Metro Police caught the girl and the father was arrested.

The 38-year-old father will be charged for attempted murder of his daughter. The case will be investigated by the Motherwell Cluster Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit. The child will be handed back to her 35-year-old mother while Social Work Services will oversee and give assistance.
