A Chinese father dangled his terrified 3-year-old daughter out of a sixth-floor window yesterday, after having a heated argument with her mother. The horrifying domestic dispute went down in Guangzhou, capital of southern China's Guangdong province, just days after the family had moved into the flat.
Neighbors claim that the deranged father opened the window at about 10:30am, and then sat on the edge while dangling his daughter above the drop below.
He would occasionally support her with his foot, but for most of the time held onto her by just one arm. The mother could be heard shouting from inside the apartment.
Meanwhile, police entered the apartment to reason with the man, who was allegedly under the influence of drugs.
During their negotiations they suddenly rushed the offender and were able to pull the little girl to safety.
We pray the child is not severely traumatized by the incident.
