A father and his two children in Tel Aviv have been found dead after falling from an 11 storey building.

Local police suspect that the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide, which involved the 52-year-old man throwing the children, aged three and five to their deaths before jumping himself.

A spokesperson for Magen David Adom said the man and the children were dead when paramedics arrived at the scene.

According to reports, the father had told the children's mother he intended to kill them.

Police mounted a helicopter search for the man which was called off when the bodies were found.
