Woman rescues glass of bubbly instead of grandchild who falls to floor

Footage of a woman letting a baby fall over so she could rescue a glass of sparkling wine sparked a fierce discussion about parenting when it went viral on social media.

The woman, who many believe is the tot's grandma, was watching the child play with a full glass of bubbly when disaster struck, Mirror Online reports.

In the clip, believed to have been recorded in the US, a baby in a onesie is balancing against a coffee table and trying to play with champagne flute.

The woman tries her best to retrieve the glass without any spillage, but it's impossible.

As the beverage starts to spill, she removes her hand from the unsteady baby to stop the champagne flute from crashing to the ground.

Unbalanced by the sudden movement, the inevitable happens and the baby topples to the floor.

The video was uploaded on Twitter, with the caption: "When you've finally become an adult and have your priorities straight."

Unsurprisingly, the video proved controversial and was watched more than 7 million times.

While some people slammed the woman for letting the baby get so close to the drink in the first place, others defended her, saying she prevented a more serious accident from happening.

One viewer joked: "Kids bounce. Broken glass sucks to get out of carpet."

A second person, appearing to identify with the woman, quipped: "This is why my friends don't let me watch their kids."

"She could’ve easily just picked up the baby instead of dropping the baby to save her half a glass of wine," suggested a critic.

"The baby wasn't falling until the lady let her go," claimed a fourth viewer.

Another added: "To be fair, if the glass broke that could have seriously hurt the baby."

This comes after a married mum-of-two confessed that she wished she had never had kids and if she could go back in time she'd have stayed childless.

And a mum had to defend using wrist locks on her young kids when other parents accused her of treating them like dogs on a leash.
