Can tossing a baby off a 50-foot tower into a white sheet be good for the health of a baby? Traditionalists in India think so and do it regularly. USA Today has a video report of the process. They insist that no babies have been harmed by this practice. Warning: This video does show babies being tossed from the tower.

There is NO WAY that I would ever throw my child over a 50 foot building. that is so rude and disrespect. But then again that is how they feel.

it's not good at all. I would never do that in my entire life. It's extremely wrong. who cares how they feel, they should just put it up for adoption.

If it was Michael Jackson or some westerner following this practice, it would be condemned and made illegal.

Also, even if the baby doesn't show any signs of external damage, how do we know that it doesn't cause internal damage that doesn't show up right away?
