Security footage from a shop in Huainan, China shows a man picking up a 12-month-old baby and flinging it into the air in the midst of what appears to have been a fight with the shopkeeper.

According to the original poster on Chinese video sharing site 56.com, who claims to be the baby's cousin, police didn't detain the man who threw the child, and he's still at large.

The baby lived, but sustained serious injuries and is now under observation at a hospital.

A similar incident occurred last year in Beijing, where a man fighting over a parking space threw a pram containing a 2-year-old. In that case, the child died. Although the attacker argued he thought the pram was a shopping cart, he was sentenced to death last September.
