SHOCKING footage shows a dad taking his little girl for a ride around a bumpy skate park – causing the child to jerk violently backwards while strapped to his bike.
Filmed at Jindalee skate park in Brisbane, Australia in August, the clip shows the father riding a mountain bike while his daughter sits in a kids’ seat behind him.
But as he sets off across two half pipes, the girl’s head is snapped backwards causing onlookers to gasp in astonishment.
A couple more jolts cause her entire body to slam back towards the rear wheel of the bike.
The father appears oblivious to what’s happening to his daughter and rides happily around the park while skateboarders practise their tricks on the hard concrete.
At the end of the clip, the dad turns around and notices the little girl’s chair is not sitting completely upright and begins to talk to her.
The person who posted the video online said the child was “OK afterwards, just shaken up a little bit”.
However, since the footage has been uploaded to YouTube, viewers have slammed the father’s actions.
One viewer said: “I don’t think that’s safe, it could damage that kids brain stem, like shaken baby syndrome. Cringe.”
Another wrote: “Man that dad is asking for some trouble first off that’s a skate park not a bike one at least not for mountain bikes.

Another posted: “Dumb**s kids filming should’ve yelled at the dad to stop.”
