Parents make 11-yr-old toddler parasail in Kerela, case registered

A risky parasailing stunt forced upon a terrified 11-month-old infant, Niya Nizam, in Kannur district of Kerela landed the girl's parents in legal trouble.

The toddler was made to sail alone while clinging desperately to an open parachute by her parents at an adventure sports event organised by an Aerosports Society in Muzhappilangad beach, leaving the onlookers aghast.

District Magistrate, P. Balakiran said legal action would be taken against those found responsible.

"We got the information regarding this incident where a 11-month-old girl was forced for parasailing by her parents. We have taken this matter seriously and to ensure a thorough investigation, we are planning to file a charge against the parents and the organisers and for that I have already had a word with the Superintendent of Police (SP) to speed up the investigation. We will look into all the important aspects of this incident," Balakiran said.

The eyewitnesses and the onlookers felt that the parents and the organisers were insensitive to the child's age for sending her parasailing to a height of about 40 feet as the child howled in mortal fear.

Reportedly, according to the parents, the child had undergone a month's training and all security measures had been taken for the joy ride.

However, the infant looked disturbed and was in trauma as her mother rushed to pick her up and comfort her soon after the event.

Further developments in the case are awaited.

Reportedly, authorities and non-governmental organisations have come forward to voice their strong condemnation, calling the incident a clear case of cruelty to the baby.
