A Saudi couple have come under fire for posing their baby on the edge of a dizzyingly high cliff-top for a shocking souvenir photograph.
The picture was taken at the popular destination of Dikkat Al Al Halwani, at the top of Al Hada Mountain overlooking Makkah’s highways in western Saudi Arabia.
The unnamed couple have since received harsh criticism after the picture was widely circulated online, according to Saudi news site Al Marsad.
Angry social media users have accused the parents of putting their baby’s life at risk for the sake of a picture, and some have even called for them to be sent to prison, saying they are guilty of abuse.
Condemning their actions, one user, called Salem, wrote: ‘This is creepily irresponsible and there should be stringent action against whoever is behind it,’ Salem posted.
While another, Om Badr, said parents who behave irresponsibly should be punished by law.
‘Seeking thrills through pictures does not mean endangering lives and behaving in a scary and creepy manner,’ she said.
