The latest incident in Phetchabun, Thailand, comes after a man from Phuket broadcast himself hanging his 11-month-old baby daughter in a livestream on the social media site – before taking his own life.

As his daughter began to cry he let her go and ended the livestream.

According to police, Wichai said he did not intend to hurt his daughter or himself, but rather only wanted to get his wife’s attention.

The child is now in the care of his older sister.

Wichai said that he works in Bangkok and sends his money back to his wife and daughter.

Local reports say that he had suspected his wife of cheating, came home last week to find his daughter abandoned at their home – and his wife allegedly having left to be with another man.

Wichai said that he has received support from his relatives since the incident.

He apologised to the public and promised to fight for his daughter and not repeat his actions.
