A man in Taiwan caused controversy when a video surfaced of his 1-month-old son strapped to the steering wheel of a car.
The video uploaded by the babyâ€™s parents quickly went viral and sparked outrage from viewers across Taiwan and China. The manâ€™s wife, who seemingly filmed the clip, can be heard giggling throughout the 15-second video while the wheel turns in each direction with the baby on it. The newborn was only let loose from the steering wheel after he started crying.
â€śWhat the video shows does not seem as if it is intentional abuse of the child, although I think itâ€™s fair to say that the parents are a bad example for others and that the activity is certainly dangerous,â€ť Taiwanese Committee for the Improvement of Childrenâ€™s Rights director Wang Wei-Jun said.
