A man who had a baby strapped to him was caught on camera crossing the road in a reckless manner -- then losing his temper at a driver that had stopped to let him pass.

The incident occurred on Aug 19 at around 6.45pm, along St Thomas Walk.

Stomper Amazing, the driver in the incident, sent Stomp a video showing what transpired that evening.

In the footage, the man can be seen crossing the road with a baby strapped to him.

He then gestured for Stomper Amazing to stop, while calling for a woman and a boy on a kid's scooter (presumably his family) who were trailing behind. The woman was pushing a baby stroller.

Said the Stomper in a phone interview, "The man shouted at his wife to the cross the road."

Amazing added that at this point, he shook his head at the man's behaviour -- which the latter saw, hence causing him to flare up.

"I was more than happy to let him pass, but he flew into a rage and blocked my vehicle's passage with the baby strapped to him when I shook my head at his reckless act.

"He kept saying he had the right to cross because he had a baby with him. Does he think his baby is his shield?

"He also came to the driver's side and continued shouting, but I drove off," said Amazing.

According to the Stomper, he only shook his head but did not honk at the man, nor did he engage in an argument by responding.
