Dangerous daddy-swing

A picture of a laughing girl on a swing hanging around a man’s shoulders earned more than 10,340 likes and 1,883 shares.

Though the picture is of poor quality it shows that the man in the picture has created the swing with his body and two chairs – bringing happy times for the little girl, presumably his daughter.

The unusual picture earned 330 comments. Some people have given applause to the “father”. “A father will do anything for his child’s happiness,” said Ananthachary Goldey.

Some people have even named him “father of the year ”.

Not everyone saw happiness and love in this picture though. Some people pointed out the possible dangers of the human swing. Bernadette Guab commented that it was not a safe idea.

Despite not even knowing if the man in the picture was the girl’s father, some people got sentimental. Comments such as “I miss my papa” were shared as well as childhood memories.
