According to reports while the police tried to convince the man who had climbed the building to descend with the child to enable them start the demolition, he unexpectedly threw the baby and he himself jumped to a different direction.

Narrating the incident to the media, police spokesperson, Captain Andre Beetge is quoted as saying: “At about 10.40am, 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 to rescue the girl and to arrest the male.

“It is shocking that a father would attempt to sacrifice his own child for the sake of delaying the demolishing of an illegal shack structure. He will be facing the full result of the Law against his actions.
