the Video is in the time of arrival has been seen 56 million times Tiktok and has also been shared far and wide on Twitter.
this set arouses strong feelings among people, who believe that Krysta Meyer puts her baby's life in the game by throwing the little Oliver in the water.
'The little guy swims not, he is fighting for his life,' writes user @aawiz.
'I Was just witness to an attempted murder?' asks @tzych78.
'You must not do such a thing, to drown her child,' saith the any_xo_555.
the Reality is, however, not as black-and-white as it looks in the kommentarsporene.
Sanne Forest is associated with Dansk Svømmeunion as an instructor, and she also train other instructors within babysvømning. She explains to Extra Bladet, Krysta Meyers exercise is actually not as dangerous as it looks to the untrained eye.
- It is something you can do, when the child has learned to turn. It requires that you have gone to babysvømning, and that the child is not afraid of the water. It's about companionship and security, she explains.
- The last ten years we have been working extremely much with the self-rescue throughout the swimming world, there for they should go for swimming, for that they can cope. They should be able to roll from belly to back, so they can come back and breathe.
Sanne Forest stresses, however, that she would not do the drill on the way.
If I had to do the drill, I would make sure that I threw the child, and the mother was in the water.
- She is not a horrible mother, but when people don't know it, then it seems they might, that the video looks dangerous, sounds it from the Vm Forest.
But even though the babies could learn to lie in the water and look up just as Krysta Meyer's the son, so it is not something you should try, if you have rented a cottage with a pool and dream about going viral.
People should not believe that it is just something you do. It is a baby who is used to being in the water, finds svømmeinstruktøren.
