Child fired across room following beanbag mishap

A clip showing a young Irish boy being launched across a sitting room after his dad plonked himself onto a beanbag is getting hundreds of views this evening.

The video, which was originally posted on Joe.ie, shows dad Ciaran jumping onto a beanbag and launching his son, Luke, into the air.

The video was submitted to Joe buy a reader called Sean who explained the situation.

"My friend and his wife got a new bean bag and their the kids Luke and Sarah were playing on it.

"Sarah jumped on the bag and Luke slid off of it and we all laughed. Then Ciaran, his dad, jumped onto the bag and Luke went a little into the air.

"Luke loved it so he asked me to jump on it but before I did, we put a pillow beside the bag thinking he'd slid/fall onto that."

It was at this point the child went shooting across the room like a scalded cat.

"What you don't see is he went straight onto the couch into his mam's arms,” said Sean.

"The first words out of his mouth was "again, again."
