Some are furious over video of baby struggling to swim

- A video of a baby struggling to stay afloat in a swimming pool is inspiring some pretty strong reactions.

Posted to Facebook on May 2, the video - which is captioned "So hard to watch but every kid should learn this young!" - shows a baby girl on the steps of a pool.

An adult behind the camera lures her off the steps by holding a shoe just out of her reach. The infant falls face-first into the water and begins to sink.

She manages to flip herself over and float back up to the surface.

The video continues for about a minute-and-a-half, with the baby struggling to keep her head above water, before the woman behind the camera finally picks her up.
