Man throws his daughter off a bridge, and follows her hours later

In Chieti, Italy, a man allegedly threw his wife from the balcony of their home, and shortly afterwards threw his daughter off a bridge on the A14 highway.

The tragedy took place yesterday when Fausto Filippone, for some unknown reason, killed his wife and later his 10-year-old daughter by throwing her from a height of 30 metres.

After clinging to the side of the bridge for several hours, Filippone then threw himself off the bridge as well.

Despite his relatives and officials from the Brioni Spa group trying to talk him out of committing suicide, Filippone still carried out his plan while asking for forgiveness for what he had done.

His relatives, colleagues and friends are under extreme shock and said that he had never mentioned that he was going through any problems.

Filippone began asking about the condition of his daughter and wife even though he did not allow anyone to go near his daughter. He threatened them that if anyone went near his child, he would jump.

He was 49 years old.
