Bike driver ‘despicable’ – Police
Police have begun an investigation into a video of a man riding a bike dangerously with a toddler.
JOHANNESBURG - Ekhuruleni Metro Police have described a video showing a man riding a motorbike with a toddler strapped to his back in Edenvale as "horrifying".
The video went viral this week sparking outrage and concern over the child's safety.
It shows a man in his early thirties driving the bike at high speed and ignoring a red robot.
The child is believed to be between the ages of four and seven and was wearing a bicycle helmet.
The police's Wilfred Kgasago says they're now investigating the incident.
"It was horrifying, detestable, despicable the way this guy has behaved. I don't want to pre-empt things, but we have decided to take the video [and] to go to the prosecutor so that he can advise us."
The video now appears to have been removed from YouTube.
