At first he pretends to make him drink with cap still on – but then he forces the open bottle into child’s mouth to leave viewers disgusted.
A father giggles as he feeds beer to his 10-month old baby in a shocking video that has sparked outrage online.
The irresponsible dad has been blasted by viewers who saw the footage on What’s App, as well as the mother who reportedly filmed the incident.
The clip starts with the infant crawling around the floor, before the man appears holding two bottles of unopened beer.
At first he pretends to give his child a drink from the larger glass bottle while the cap is still on.
He then bites off the cap before placing the beverage to the child’s mouth.
Later in the footage he pushes the baby’s head towards the drink to force it to take a sip.
The child is also seen trying to drink from a brown coloured bottled which still has the lid on.
The family has not been identified but the footage was filmed in Chennai, south-east India.
After the clip went viral on the free-texting service, several horrified viewers accused the parents of putting their child’s life at risk.
It is not yet known if police have been made aware of the clip, or if any further action will be taken against the parents.
