Grandfather Takes Ice Bucket Challenge With 10-Month Old
Dad Outraged as 10-Month Old Takes Ice Bucket Challenge With Her Grandfather
You can't scroll through your Facebook or Instagram feeds without seeing someone taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge these days. The viral charity fundraiser is a hit with parents and children alike, but one Houston, TX, child's video is raising some concern. The video shows Claude Dalcour's 10-month-old daughter being doused with ice cold water as her grandfather stood above her and took the challenge.
Dalcour and the child's mother are going through a divorce, and the maternal grandfather's video is only adding fuel to the fire. "My family was shocked, my friends were shocked, pretty much everyone I know was shocked and appalled," Dalcour says. "You don't do that to an infant!"
Family and friends aren't just taking notice — Dalcour contacted the local police, and a Facebook user reported the incident to child protective services.
