This is the worst thing ever.
A 25-year-old father named John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. has been arrested after murdering his 5-year-old daughter in front of police officers — by throwing her off a bridge in Florida.
The incident happened early Thursday morning at the Dick Misener Bridge in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The father was initially pulled over by police for going over 100 mph when the disturbed man took his daughter and tossed her over the railing. Officers even heard her hit the ice cold water 62 feet below. They immediately jumped into action, but it sounds like the chaos was split between the girl and the escaping father.

Police looked for the little girl for an hour before finding her body. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital not too long after they found her.
The father managed to get away at first, but was eventually stopped again and arrested for "first degree murder, aggravated assault of an officer and fleeing and eluding."
This is just disgusting. There is NO excuse.
Such a sad, waste of life during these events.
