Worst father ever almost kills young son during skateboard trick (video)

I hesitate to even call this an accident, because what did the guy imagine was going to happen? A father thinks it would be a good idea to carry his young son in his arms while going down a concrete ramp at a skateboard park. Neither are wearing a helmet. I see no possible way this can end badly.

Caution: Stupid parent + skateboard + innocent child + lack of protective gear = disturbing images.

I know that we all want to throttle this guy, and rightfully so. But what about the onlookers — including the person who shot the video — who stood by and let it happen?

    This guy is the biggest moron ever. If his kid dies from head trauma he shoud be charged with murder. YOU ARE A F-ING IDIOT!!! Did anyone see how hard that kids head hit the CONCRETE with NO HELMET??!! Its dumbass people like you that make us all say “what is the world coming to?

      The world is coming to anything, it has always been this way and there have always been people (and parents) this stupid. The only difference now is that they are all outfitted with video recording devices and the internet provides a forum to share their stupidity with the masses.

    As a father, that video makes me sick to my stomach. I hope that the kid doesn’t suffer any long-term brain injuries as a result of this.

    OMFG…you should see the hoops I gotta jump through to get a license to operate a car but this **** head can do that with his kid, no test to pass, eh? When I come to rule the world, he’s the first to be culled.

      Man, Mr. Chandler, you edited me for language but didn’t fix up my typos on the last Jeremy Lin post? Cold, bro.

    I hope the idiot that filmed this turned a copy over to the authorities, and not just to whoever he sold this to. If not, that person and the idiot guy in the clip should both be in jail. That is classic child endangerment. I am not a parent, and I am still outraged.

    And, if Rick Chandler, and whoever else were in the stream to get this video on here also didn’t follow the trail back to get this to the authorities, they should all be ashamed as well. If you did nothing more than post it here and express your outrage, and didn’t actually follow up on it, you are also at fault for any future things that happen to this kid because that idiot of an “adult” wasn’t turned in.

      Settle down, Kojak.

    Rooney forgot to attend his anger management course.

    Guy’s still an idiot however.

    He should have his kid taken for wearing his hat like that.

    Completely by coindicence, I just watched the video of Bubba Watson hitting the golf ball through a watermelon and then this back-to-back. The similarity between the sounds is horrifying.

    Take his kid away, and then repeatedly pile drive that guy head-first into the concrete… woof.

    It’s a shame the father didn’t fall on his groin. People like this moron should not procreate. Hope the little guy is ok.
