Moment Grandmother Lets Her Grandchild Drop To The Floor

A video showing a grandmother faced with the most difficult of dilemmas, whether to save a glass of bubbles from falling to the floor or her young grandchild, has gone viral.

The solution for the lady in question, thought to be from the United States, was indeed at the base of the flute, and the laughable clip shows the baby hurtling floor-bound while the glass of fizz is saved, albeit with half of its contents gone.

The video, entitled ‘And Grandmother of the year award goes to…’ was posted to Imgur earlier this week, has already had more than six million views since it was also shared to Twitter.

On Twitter, opinion was divided over the lady’s actions, with many saying that the grandmother should have put the child first, others defended her, saying she could have contained a more serious accident by preventing the glass from breaking.

In the brief clip, the baby, sporting a navy striped onesie, reaches for his grandmother’s tall glass, which was perched on the coffee table.

When the woman notices, she moves quickly to take the glass out of the infant’s hand and becomes so consumed with rescuing its contents, she released her supporting hand from the baby’s waist.

The unavoidable ensues and the baby falls sideways to the floor before just his feet are visible in the picture.

@T54350877 wrote that she could have easily just picked up the baby instead of dropping the baby to save her half a glass of wine.

@Musmu1203 was among those defending the actions of the grandmother, saying that if the glass had fallen with the baby, it would have broken and the baby would have been hurt and that she did the right thing.

@Matt_Dean1994 added that as a parent, she should have let the baby fall, that babies bounce and that when they fall they’re okay almost every time. That the glass could have broken and the baby would have been at risk of cutting itself on the fragments of glass.

Of course, it’s an involuntary reaction to grab something that’s falling. It was an accident, and I’m sure she didn’t mean to let the baby fall, she just reacted, automatically.

Perhaps she did the right thing, otherwise, the child would have cut himself to shreds, and it seems that this has been made into a bigger thing than was needed, although it would have been a much bigger thing with the baby being rushed to the Emergency Room.

I would sooner my baby have a bruised bottom, than a fragment of glass in it from the smashed flute, and seeing as the child was already standing on the floor, they weren’t going to fall very far, although it does beggar belief why this child was allowed to walk around while there was glassware about.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
