You Tube Video Shows Baby Catapulted by Teen

A You Tube video lead to the arrest of a teen for what he filmed himself doing.

In the video he places a baby on an inflatable pillow and then someone jumps on the pillow launching the infant across the room.

A south Georgia teenager posted the video on Youtube and now he's charged with felony cruelty to a child.

The 16-year-old was babysitting the eight-month-old when he pulled the stunt. A school teacher saw the disturbing video and called the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

"It's not going to be funny when the judge gets through with him," Sheriff Harold Breeden said. "He'll think twice next time, you know, about how funny it was."

Breeden has asked the baby's parent to have the child seen by a doctor. It's unclear if the baby suffered any injuries from the fall.
