Russian couple swings baby around by ankles in freakish street performance

Stills of the street performance, shared by CNN, show the unidentified man swinging the four-month-old child over his head and between his legs.

In the video, the Caucasian man was seen flippantly holding a baby and swinging the child vigorously.

He throws the child above his head, claps, and catches the child again as a group of people sit on the ground swaying to music.

A crowd of onlookers gathered to watch the act, but no one stepped in to stop them.

The footage was uploaded by Kuala Lumpur resident Zayl Chia Abdulla, who said in the post he witnessed the event personally.

He questioned why the authorities were allowing such behaviour to take place and called for the "street performers" to be arrested.

A crowd of people can be seen watching the street performance, which appeared to be a busking effort to fund a round-the-world trip. "Please do something", he wrote in a Facebook post, calling it an, "irresponsible act that can literally cause injury to that poor baby".

'Bond King' Bill Gross to retire from Janus
The American, 74, who is regarded as a pioneer in fixed-income investing, co-founded Pimco in 1971, where he earned his nickname. Gross ran the PIMCO Total Return Fund, which was once the world's largest bond fund at a peak of $292.9 billion in assets.

The Facebook post has been viewed more than 28,000 times and has sparked a flurry of comments.

City police chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said that the arrest was made following reports made by the public.

One commenter identified as Daria Kalinkevich defended the couple's baby gymnastics, saying that it's common practice in Russian Federation and makes babies strong.

The practice of "begpacking" is largely permitted in Malaysia but has been criticized on social media as being part of white privilege whereby Western travellers ask for money to fund travel of a kind unavailable to most local populations. It has gained particular traction in South-East Asia.

"The husband and wife entered Malaysia last Jan 1 from Thailand, where they claimed to have performed a similar act", he said, adding that police would obtain a remand order against the couple tomorrow for investigation under Section 31 (1)(a) of the Child Act 2001.

It was not clear if police had charged the couple with any offence.
