(Scroll down for video) Police in Thailand, were called after a father was seen on video placing a rope around a baby’s neck.

Sadly, by the time police figured out where the father was, he had already killed his daughter and himself.

Police Major Prawat Tantibhussapun said the father’s cousin logged into Facebook, and he saw a live-streaming video in which 20-year-old Wuttisan “Tei” Wongtalay was putting a rope around his 11-month-old daughter Beta’s neck.

The cousin called the girl’s mother and she immediately called the police.

Officers tried to find the location in order to rescue the child. At 6:30 p.m., about 45 minutes after the live-streaming video began, officers located the bodies hanging in an abandoned building.

Police in Phuket Island, confirmed that the man killed his daughter and then he stepped away from the camera’s view and committed suicide by hanging himself.

Wongthale’s wife Jiranuch Trirat, said that before the incident, she and her husband got into an argument and she left the home to calm down.

When she returned home, her husband and daughter were not there. She tried calling him, but was unable to reach him.

She received the call about the live-streaming video shortly thereafter. Trirat said that she never thought her husband would take out his anger on their daughter.

The video clip, which is about four minutes long, was on Facebook for 24 hours, before police was able to get Facebook to remove it.
