The 27-year-old had been living in an asylum centre in Vienna's Floridsdorf district and had already been given several warnings for being drunk and violent.
So when he turned up again intoxicated with a beer in his hand and was told to leave, he flew into a furious rage.
Spotting his baby daughter in a pram nearby, he grabbed her and ran into the busy road, and put her in the middle of a traffic lane.
