A man was jailed after he threatened to drop a baby out of a window if he does not get enough Facebook likes.

Now, the man of Algeria, was found guilty of endangering the welfare of the baby and he was sentenced to two years in prison.

The unidentified man posted photos of himself holding a baby, who is his relative, out of a window of the 15th floor to get “likes” on Facebook.

Police were called by concerned citizens after the man posted the photos to Facebook with the caption, “1,000 likes or I will drop him.”

The baby’s father defended the man and said that he was on a balcony with protective barriers, but social media users altered the photos to make it look like he endangered the baby.

The boy’s father also asked the court to free the man, but the judge said it was clear that the child’s life was in danger and found him guilty.

People in Algeria, praised authorities for arresting and convicting the man.
