(Scroll down for video) People are calling on police to take action after a young boy was seen riding on the roof of a car in Taiwan.
According to a video uploaded to the Internet, it seems that the child’s parents were unable to convince their son not to treat the car like a playground.
The video was recorded by 38-year-old Sun Hsiung, who was traveling with her husband and two children, and saw the car with the child on top coming from the opposite direction toward the center of Taoyuan.
“Suddenly, the car with the boy sitting happily on the roof as if it were the most normal thing in the world appeared. His face was radiant and he clearly thought he was very funny. I dread to think what would have happened if the car had suddenly stopped, or if the boy had fallen. The car behind them would never be able to stop in time. I was very surprised that people could be so irresponsible with a child,” Hsiung said.
A police spokesperson said that they were looking to identify the driver of the car. They are looking to suspend the license of the child’s parent, and charge the parent with reckless endangerment.
