A shocking video posted on the Internet has landed a Georgia teenager in a heap of trouble.
The video posted on YouTube shows a 16-year old boy using an inflatable pillow to launch an eight-month old baby into the air.
The baby's family had left the infant in the care of the family of the teen who was behind the camera, shooting the video.
After viewing the video, an area high school teacher contacted authorities. Lee County Sheriff Harold Breeden says his department arrested the boy seen in the video.
"He has been arrested and charged with cruelty to children in the first degree, and the third degree," Breeden said.
No charges have been filed against the teen who videotaped the incident. The baby's parents are waiting to learn if the infant received any injuries from the fall.
