“This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim,” a Singapore-based spokesman for the social media giant said in an email to Reuters.
“There is absolutely no place for content of this kind on Facebook and it has now been removed,” the wire service reported.
Wuttisan Wongtalay, 20, was upset with his wife and took their daughter to an abandoned hotel, where he hung his baby with a rope on camera, police said.
He then hung himself, but that act was not filmed. A police spokesman said the child, whose name was Natalie, is heard crying on the video, but then stops.
Last week in the U.S., a Cleveland man shot to death an elderly man and streamed it on the social network site, where it was visible for about two hours.
Wuttisan’s wife, JiranuchTriratana said the couple had been married for more than a year, but her husband grew increasingly violent, according to police.
She said Wuttisan sometimes hit her 5-year-old son from a previous relationship.
The 21-year-old wife said she called police after fleeing her home because Wuttisan had attacked her.
The father left with his daughter and went to the unfinished hotel in resort town of Phuket, police said.
Their bodies were found hanging from a high ledge.
