Girl swims with bound hands and feet, Dad watches
A father in China tied his ten-year-old daughter's hands and feet and let her swim for three hours in a river because he believed the exercise would help her achieve her goal of swimming the English Channel.
The father, who is a teacher, has been coaching the girl because they cannot afford a real swim teacher.
"Her swimming skills are perfect and she insisted on doing this," said Huang Daosheng. "It's not dangerous because, first, her swimming skills are really good and second, I was swimming with her, staying close to her," the father said. "I had her when I was 35, so she is my heart. I would never play around with her life."
This really makes me mad. Most kids go through a spell where they think if they flap hard enough, they'll be able to fly. That doesn't mean parents should let them jump off the roof, though.
