An Australian man was charged with murder after allegedly throwing his four-year-old daughter from a city bridge into a river during peak hour traffic on Thursday, police said.
The 36-year-old man, believed to be involved in a custody battle with the girl's mother, allegedly threw her from a 60-metre (200-feet) high section of the West Gate bridge into the Yarra River in the southern city of Melbourne.
The incident took place in front of hundreds of motorists while two other children, boys believed to be aged six and eight, remained in the four-wheel drive, police said.
"No one had the opportunity to intervene ... it all happened fairly quickly," Detective Inspector Steve Clark told reporters.
"He's got straight out of the car and taken the young girl and walked to the edge of the bridge, so that would have happened in a matter of seconds."
