A dad jumped from a hospital window with his baby daughter in his arms after allegedly having a row with his wife.

The man (27) known as Vladimir V and his one-year-old daughter were pronounced dead at the La Paz Hospital in Madrid early on Friday morning.

It's alleged the man shouted to his wife that she "will pay for it" before jumping from the fourth storey of the building.

The couple, believed to be of Chilean origin, are reported to have been going through a divorce.

They were in hospital with their baby who had heart problems due to a premature birth, local media reports.

In a statement the hospital said: “Around 8.30am today a man aged 27 and a girl aged one, who had been admitted to the paediatric section and had just been discharged, plunged from the fourth floor of the children’s hospital.

“A team of professionals from the hospital tried immediately to revive them but finally both have died.

“The case is being investigated by police and the courts.”
