JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A video of a father kicking his six-year-old son down a skateboard ramp has gone viral.

The footage was taken by another skater at the Kona Skatepark in Jacksonville, Florida, reports ABC News.

In the video, the child hesitates at the ramp. The father then appears to lose his patience before kicking his son down the ramp and walking away.

The child was not injured, according to onlookers. However, parents in the area feel uneasy about the incident.

“It kind of hits right here when you are a parent to see someone do that to a kid,” said one father, TJ Smith. “That is somebody who got way too aggressive.”

The owner of the park has asked the father to stay away for a while.

The Florida Department of Children and Families is looking into the footage.
