Saudi baby photo on mountain edge sparks outrage

Mother slammed by Twitter users under the hashtag “on the sidewalk of recklessness” (Al Arabiya)

A photo of an infant whose mother put on a brink that overlooks the highest summit of al-Hada Mountain in Taif, Saudi Arabia has stirred uproar on social media as many thought it was extremely dangerous to put the child there on a mountainous edge that’s less than 50 meters in width for the purpose of snapping a picture.

Twitter users tweeted with the hashtag “on the sidewalk of recklessness” and condemned the mother’s act saying she jeopardized the child’s life to take a photo.

Many users added that while a lot of people are deprived of the blessing to have a child, some are completely neglectful and irresponsible when looking after their children.
