A shocking video of a child's baptism has gone viral, as it features a priest slapping the child across the face.
The priest, who is speaking French, is seen blessing the baby and the child begins crying.
An onlooker can be heard gasping, as the priest then raises his voice at the boy and places his hand over his mouth in an attempt to muffle the cries.
Added another: "A priest slaps my baby and I'm putting him on the cross".
According to UK Daily Mail, the child would not stop crying during the ceremony; causing the clergyman to lose his temper, lift his left hand and hit the baby in the face.
The father then pulls the baby away from the priest completely as the video ends.
Other French-speaking Reddit users have tried to translate what's being said in the video.
