UPDATE: This videe has in fact been exposed as a fake.
A video showing what appears to be a large golden eagle swooping down and briefly lifting a child from the ground has gone viral since it was uploaded Tuesday.
The video also has widely been criticized as being fake in the comments section, and a second video focusing on the slow-motion portion appears to support that contention. In the second video, posted below, note that the child rises in the air momentarily after being dropped by the bird.
We've reached out to MrNuclearCat, who uploaded the initial video, asking for more details and if the footage is genuine, but have yet to hear back.
If the footage is real, then the child and his family are extremely fortunate.
