Filmed in Guangxi, China a toddler sets off on her journey with her grandfather on the back. According to the police, who issued a warning to the grandfather, the man said that he was ‘confident’ of their safety because the little girl rarely gripped the controls whilst seated on the bike.
We literally have ‘no words’ to describe the feeling we have when watching this. What is so shocking is the grandfather’s confidence in himself and the child that nothing bad will happen but what about all the other nutters on the road!!
Whilst appreciating that all cultures have different values, surely the safety of a child should be second nature and not up for debate. He should have been fined for allowing the child to be put in that position, not warned! It’s criminal to put a child in such danger.
