Parents 'Forced' Wailing 11-Month-Old Baby To Parasail By Herself: Cops

Police in India have reportedly launched an investigation after an 11-month-old infant was captured on video parasailing by herself some 50 feet in the air.

According to the Times of India, the baby was sent flying Wednesday at an event on a Kerala beach. Once airborne, the child was reportedly towed by a truck for about 100 feet.

In the video above, uploaded by Indian news channel Asianet News, the infant is pictured wailing before embarking on the harrowing journey, as adults believed to be her parents help prepare her for takeoff.

The parasailing event was reportedly organized by Malabar Aero Sports Society, a Kerala-based adventure sports organization. The company has claimed that it imparted "proper training" to the baby before the flight, per the Times of India.

According to Asian News International, both the organizers and the child's parents may be in hot soup following the dangerous event.

"We got the information regarding this incident where a 11-month-old girl was forced for parasailing by her parents [sic]," a local police rep said, per the news agency. "We have taken this matter seriously and to ensure a thorough investigation, we are planning to file a charge against the parents and the organizers."
