A sleepy Taiwanese girl has caught the attention of social media users after she was caught sleeping sideways on the lap of a scooter-rider, believed to be her grandmother on Sunday.
According to a Facebook post captioned “Swag noon nap,” the short video clip featured a parental figure riding a scooter with a child on her lap.
Even though the child is seen wearing a face mask as per virus-prevention regulations, she was without a helmet, with her head and legs sticking out the side of the scooter.
The child, who was also wearing shades apparently to ward of the glare of the sunlight when lying face up on the scooter led the social media user who shared the post to comment on her “coolness.”
However, many were alarmed by the video, with some commenting that as opposed to “swag” it may be closer to “yolo”, meaning “you only live once.”
Others pointed out that if an accident should occur, the girl would likely suffer severe trauma to her head and legs, which were without protection and hanging off the side.
Still, some speculated that judging by the child’s lack of shoes, they could be on the way to a nearby hospital seeking medical help.
