In what direction are we going with putting entertainment before security? Everyone appeared to be wondering that after a video of a couple riding a scooter with a toddler only using a footrest surfaced. Although we have all seen children crammed in between two scooter or bike riders, this strange scene went viral online, with people furious at the couple's alleged "stupidity."

The trending video

The video, which went popular on "X" very quickly, shows a man maneuvering through traffic on a scooter while a woman sitting behind him is sat next to a toddler, who is probably his son. As they make their way down the crowded road, the mom is holding the infant in one hand. 
Police have reportedly called for action after seeing the footage, which was apparently taken in Whitefield, Bengaluru, by a rider behind them. A wave of condemnation was generated by the video, with many denouncing the couple's careless actions.
