This is the weird moment a baby's relatives are forced to wrestle their child away from a French priest who slapped it during its baptism.
The priest continues and says: "Now you calm down".
The footage depicts what looks like a standard christening with the priest trying to perform the religious ceremony on a crying baby.
The child's relatives still appear to be smiling as the priest brings the baby's head towards his, but the baby reacts badly and flails its right arm towards the woman.
Stunned witnesses say "he's afraid" and tell the priest to let go.
According to a video by Dailymail UK, the clergyman hit the child in the face with his left hand after he lost his temper when the child would not stop crying during the ceremony.
Amid gasps from the congregation, the priest is then seen pulling the child closer and putting his hand over his mouth in a possible effort to stifle his cries.
One user translated the footage into English and claimed the priest was explaining he would pour water on the child's forehead, saying: "He'll have become a little Christian". I'll scream louder than you, OK?
The man and woman are recorded attempting to pull the baby away from the priest.
Eventually, the man believed to be the boy's father, yanks the boy away as the video cuts out.
Many people online have been outraged by the priest's behaviour. Added another: "A priest slaps my baby and I'm putting him on the cross".
