A MAN has been filmed pushing a toddler on a swing nearly 80ft above the pavement.
The heart-stopping video shows the man repeatedly pushing child believed to be his daughter, on the balcony of their Puerto Rico apartment.
In the 12 second clip, the child flies high up into the air and nearly up to the balcony above the apartment.
Despite the balcony being on the eighth floor, the toddler doesn’t appear to be secured with any safety equipment.
The video was captured by Jonathan Padilla, a journalist for the Mexican Herald, and was widely shared on Reddit.
"A man swung his underage daughter on the balcony of his apartment during this quarantine,” he said.
Those who saw the video slammed the man for risking his child's life.
"Just because you cannot go to the park does not mean you can risk your child's life," said one
Others pointed out the dad could have installed the swing inside the flat.
"All you need is an over the door pull up bar, and this swing could be inside the apartment."
Some said the child could easily have slipped off the swing and fallen off the building .
"They have swings that go on door jams and that you can mount in the door frame. This is an unnecessary risk," one worried viewer wrote.
