Shocking footage has emerged of a man kicking his six-year-old boy off a half-pipe.
The video shows Marcus Crossland and his son, nicknamed Dino the Dinosaur, at a skate park in Jacksonville, Florida.
Dino, who is well known in the area for skating and performing tricks for videos uploaded to YouTube, is heard howling in pain after his father kicks him off the top of the ramp.
The young skater was said to be unhurt, but police are aware of the video and will be contacting Marcus.

The moment was caught on camera and uploaded to Instagram.
The skate park’s operator Martin Ramos said that the pair are regulars at the park and that he hadn’t seen Crossland act that way before.
He said: ‘He said he was just caught up in the moment. He seemed very remorseful. He certainly understands the gravity of the situation and it seems like he is going to be answering to this thing for quite some time to come.’
