In his video, a man first enjoys swinging a baby between his legs – which he holds by his ankles – and then brandishing him over his head. Right next to him, a woman is playing music in front of a sign explaining that they are looking for "gifts" to continue their journey "around the world". "How can you do that?", Launches a voice in the audience.

To believe their sign, the couple seems to illustrate a phenomenon already well known in Asia: that of "begpackers" (a word game derived from the term "backpackers", which refers to travelers with large backpack, and the verb " to beg ", which means" begging "in English). These tourists, who are often westerners, go to the streets of the countries they visit in order to finance the rest of their trip.

"Is it a baby's place to be exposed like a fairy beast at night in front of a crowd?"

Ornella Lenoir is a French midwife in Switzerland. According to her, this "show" presents a significant risk for the health of the child:

For up to a year, there is the risk of shaken baby syndrome. This can lead to severe brain damage until death.

Basically, the cranial box is wider than the brain to let it grow. Suddenly, on a sudden movement, the brain will go bump on the walls and get damaged.

It is even more "easy" that the musculature – in particular the spine – is not strong enough in the first months of life to maintain the head.

The other risk I see is at the level of the members. Whether for the legs or arms, the muscles are once again too weak and the laxity is great. In short, depending on the movements or the type of "catch", one can imagine a risk of dislocation, for example. And of course, there is also the risk of falling.

But anyway, doing a show with a baby is just outrageous in itself. Is it a baby's place to be exposed like a fairy beast at night in front of a crowd?

On February 4, a few days after the broadcast of the video on social networks, the Malaysian police arrested the couple while they made a new representation in the street. The authorities have opened an investigation to endanger the child. They were finally released the next day.
