Man sent to prison for dangling baby out window for Facebook likes

An Algerian man has been sentenced to two years in prison for dangling a baby out of a window to gather more Facebook likes.

The BBC reports the man posted a picture of himself holding the baby out of the 15th floor high-rise with the caption "1,000 likes or I will drop him."

The man, who is a relative and not the baby's father, was arrested Sunday and charged with endangering the child's safety.

Despite the danger, the baby's father asked the court to forgive the man, but the judge ruled against him.
