A father posted a sickening picture of his baby dangling from a 15th floor window to get likes on Facebook .
The man, from Algeria, had published the picture of him hanging the child over the road below, gripping his t-shirt with just one hand. Alongside the picture he had written: “1,000 likes or I will drop him,” according to Al Alarabiya .
The website claimed the child was in a state of “fear and bewilderment”. The father asked for 1,000 likes on Facebook before threatening to drop the child.
After seeing the post, many social media users demanded that the man be charged with child abuse .
Yesterday, an Algerian court in the capital Algiers sentenced the man to two years in prison.
It is believed the man only carried out the act to gain likes on social media.
