Grandpa Underestimates Swing Speed And Sprints To Catch Toddler

Time at the park with Grandpa almost always sounds like a good time, but one young toddler was in for quite a ride when her grandad underestimated the swing’s speed.

TikTok user Rachael (@mrsrapira) shared the hilarious moment when she was at the park with her two kids and their grandpa.

He sat the youngest child, a toddler, on a cable swing and gently pushed her.

As the swing moved down the track, the grandpa walked and then began jogging to keep up. Before he knew it, the little girl was speeding away and he was forced to sprint to catch up!

Despite his best efforts and full sprint, the girl hit the end of the swing and shot backward, into Grandpa’s arms. Miraculously, she managed to hang on through the whole ordeal so she wasn’t hurt.

Rachael captioned her video: “Cry laughing when he gassed it to catch up to his mokopuna.”

If I were a parent, I’m not sure I’d be laughing at such a potentially dangerous ordeal, but all is well that ends well! We’re glad she has a good sense of humor about it.
