    Funny balancing act - a young girl called Mary gets thrown around by her father and jumps off a roof.

  • Description

    A two and a half year old girl called Mary does a balancing act.

    She stands on her father's hand and he lifts her high in the air. She claps her hands and waves, looking very pleased with herself. She then stands on one leg balancing. Her dad then hold her feet and throws her around a bit. He swings her between his legs and above his head. He then holds her by both ankles then lifts her from the ground into the air whilst she keeps her legs very straight.

    Mary then stands on a broom handle and her father lifts her into the air. We then see Mary standing on the roof of a house. Her father holds his arms out and she jumps off - looks pretty scary! Dad holds daughter up to the camera. Quirky stuff - stunts.
