Dad dangles baby out window for Facebook popularity

(ALARABIYA) — An Algerian court sentenced a man who dangled his child out of a 15th-floor window in the capital Algiers to two years in prison on Monday.

The defendant posted on Facebook a photo of him dangling his son out of a window with the caption, “1000 likes or I will drop him.” The child appeared to be in a state of fear and bewilderment.

After watching the video, many Facebook users demanded that the man be tried on child abuse charges.
