Shocking footage has emerged of a father tossing his crying toddler into a lake in an effort to force him into swimming. The clip shows the crying boy screaming in fear as he falls in before struggling to keep his head above the water.
It starts with the father dragging the young boy into the water as he frantically kicks out and cries. The man then pulls the boy’s top off as he tries to make it back onto land, before perching him above his head.
The father then suddenly launches the frightened tot into air, before he crashes into the water and desperately paddles to keep afloat.
The video is reminiscent of footage released earlier this year which showed a trainer forcing a seemingly terrified dog into churning water on the film of a Hollywood film.
