A FATHER has killed himself and his daughter after jumping out of a hospital window in Madrid.

Staff at the La Paz Hospital said the 27-year-old man launched himself and his daughter out of the four-storey window after a heated argument with his partner.

An emergency services spokesperson, Javier Chivite, told news outlets that staff spent 45 minutes trying to resuscitate both the father and the one-year-old but were unsuccessful.

Hospital representatives said they were unsure how the man was able to open the window as they are normally locked.

Police have launched an investigation into the tragedy.
