At six months, babies may be learning to sit up on their own and may be getting their first tooth, but Rich Casey Humphreys is over here breaking a world record. At six-months and four-days old, this little guy has become the youngest water skier in the world. Yep, six months! The video is going viral and his parents are celebrating, but critics are slamming them for not putting safety first.
On his Instagram page, Rich’s parents, Casey and Mindi Humphreys, posted a video of him wearing a life jacket as he holds onto a bar on a board that’s being pulled across Lake Powell in Utah. An adult is seen on a boat within arms-reach of the baby, but he manages to stay standing and hang on without help. And while he may be having fun and even have become the youngest baby in the world to water ski, the parenting police have a lot to say about this risky pastime.
