It’s an image gone viral, a baby girl drenched in water as part of her grandfather’s “ice bucket challenge.” Commented on by social media users nationwide, a Houston area man is now claiming he is the child’s father, and he is not happy about what he saw in that video.
Late Thursday afternoon, Fox 26 also learned local law enforcement officers are now investigating after Claude Dalcour filed a complaint.
“I was shocked, appalled,” Dalcour said in an interview with Fox 26. When asked if he immediately recognized the child upon watching the video, Dalcour said, ” Yes. Yes, I thought that’s my daughter. It brought me to tears, like I was hurt, angry. That’s all I can say.”
Dalcour, who is still married but separated, wouldn’t give us his soon-to-be ex-father-in-law’s phone number, but he did offer several family photos as proof of his claim to the child in the video.
“It’s abuse because my daughter is an infant,” Dalcour said. “She doesn’t know what’s going.”
