Grandfather under fire for dumping ice on granddaughter
By Austin Prickett
(CNN) -- The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been the splash of social media for weeks but some say a grandfather must have been out of his mind when he poured freezing cold water on his 10-month old grand baby. The ice bucket challenge is everywhere but this Texas grandfather raised the ire of his family after he posted a video of him dumping ice water on him and his granddaughter to Facebook. The baby's father Claude Dalcour said his family was shocked to see the video. Dalcour says he is currently going through a nasty divorce with the baby's mother and things got even nastier when he saw his ex-father-in-law's ice bucket challenge. "You don't do that to an infant. The water splashing into her face, a whole giant bucket of water," Dalcour said. The family says a person from out of state sent the video link to to the Texas Department of Children and Families. The agency won't confirm it's investigating but says it's finding more and more abuse cases through social media. Dalcour says he also took the video to police. "It's not his child, it's my child. That's my blood. He's only the grandad and when I felt he did that, that's disrespectful."Despite the father's anger, the grandfather hasn't been charged with any crime. (Video Source: CNN)
