This is the moment a father dangled his terrified three-year-old daughter out of a sixth-floor window after having a heated argument with her mother.
The drama unfurled in Guangzhou, capital of southern China’s Guangdong province, just days after the family had moved into the flat.

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.
