Grandfather drenches infant in Ice Bucket Challenge

Some say a grandfather took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge way too far when he poured freezing cold water on his 10-month-old grandaughter. The baby's father was so angry when he saw the video, he went to the police.

HOUSTON — A 10-month-old was doused with ice water when her grandfather did the Ice Bucket Challenge above her, and her father is angry.

"I was shocked," said the girl's father, Claude Dalcour. "Everybody I know was pretty much shocked and appalled."

Dalcour said he's going through a nasty divorce with the girl's mother. Things got even nastier when he saw his ex-father-in-law's Facebook post.

"You don't do that to an infant," Dalcour said. "He should know better."

The video has been viewed by thousands of people on Facebook.

One concerned stranger from out of state even sent a link to the Texas Department of Children and Families. The agency wouldn't confirm whether it is actually investigating the case and taking action.

Dalcour said he's gone to police about the incident.

"It's a big deal," he said. "It's not his child, it's my child."

Despite the father's anger, the grandfather hasn't been charged with any crime. We reached out to him via Facebook, but he did not respond.

Nope, unless they can tell you what they want to do . You don't do that to a baby. My 4 year old wants to do it cuz he saw my sil (14) do it , but I'm not allowing it. When can understand what it's for he can do it . Me and my dh did it .

Did I want the video, no. Did I watch the video yes I did. No where in that video is a baby in a car seat. She is in a walker in the yard. Why don't you try watching the video?

Edit - I see what you are talking about but this is not about a car seat.
