A video of a baby being swung and twisted in the air by a grown woman is circulating the Internet and social networking sites. Some of the videos ask for viewers to share the video to help identify the woman, others ask for viewers to unite to help stop child abuse. Later 2013 variants assert the woman is wanted by the FBI and urges users to share the video to help capture her.
The video actually depicts a controversial practice that is popular in Russia and other Eastern European countries and is known as Baby Yoga, where adults swing and twist babies (aged anywhere between two weeks and two years) in a variety of ways with the supposed intention of developing strength and flexibility.
There are many videos circulating since around 2010 that show Baby Yoga in practice.
Despite its growing popularity in the East, Baby Yoga has been dubbed by professional health industry experts in both the UK and US as extremely dangerous as it greatly increases the chances of ill effects such as subdural hematomas, internal haemorrhaging, dislocated joints and SBS. (shaken baby syndrome)
The legality of Baby Yoga is still very much under debate. However it is not recommended to circulate this video under the pretense of identifying or locating the woman since Baby Yoga is a well-known practice in Russia and the authorities are well aware of its existence. Rumours that assert the woman is wanted by authorities are simply false and no one is trying to locate the woman in the video.
