A suicidal dad jumped in front of a Bronx subway train and died Monday morning with his terrified 6-year-old daughter in tow, officials said.

The girl was clipped by the train but survived.

The pair were holding hands waiting for a rush-hour Manhattan-bound No. 4 train on the platform at the Kingsbridge Road station in Kingsbridge when the dad suddenly jumped about 8 a.m., pulling his daughter with him, horrified witnesses told cops.

The father was struck by the train pulling into the station and died at the scene.

The girl was clipped by the train and suffered minor injuries, sources said. She was taken to Jacobi Medical Center. Her mom joined her there.
