A latest video uploaded on YouTube of an 8-year old boy wearing a Ben 10 t-shirt and driving a red Ferrari F430 car near his house in Shobha City, Thrissur, Kerala has put YouTube viewers in shock. The video has got severe criticizing comments to parents who have allowed the kid to drive the fast sports car.
The video was filmed by the boy’s mother and was uploaded on YouTube by his father on April 12, 2013. The comments on YouTube suggest irresponsible parenting. Despite the fact, the parents are proud of their kid to learn driving a sports car at this age. The parents claimed that the boy drives the other cars including Lamborghini and Bentley also owned by the family.
The proud mother claimed that her son drove the sports car on an empty private road in their residential colony and she ensured that no child was around. But contrary to her claims, we can see in the video some children following the car. An another similar-age kid is also sitting beside along with the boy in the car while he is driving.
Here is what Amal Nisham, the mother of the boy, told to NDTV :
It was his ninth birthday, and since he was insisting for months, we allowed him to drive the Ferrari. He is a cautious and confident driver. I am proud of him.
It’s only because my son is driving a Ferrari that it is being made an issue. He has got talent in him. He likes driving cars and drives them well. I think we were just boosting him. We were trying to build the talent he has got. I am proud of him. He drives well. It is not easy for a child to achieve such a feat at this young age.
At the start of this month i.e. April 2013, an underage son of a politician had killed a 2-year old baby while driving his SUV.
