This is the incredible moment an angry mother launched her flip-flop at her fleeing teenage daughter with an incredible long range shot.
The parent walked out into the street – somewhere in Mexico – to pursue her daughter who ran away away after a family row.
The mother took her sandal off and lined up the seemingly impossible shot – before chucking it at least 30 meters down the street. It hits her child between the shoulders and brings her to a halt.
A man can be heard in the background of the clip, saying: ‘Go on, hit her, hit her!’
And, incredibly, the flip-flop flies as straight as an arrow – high into the air – before hitting the daughter between the shoulders.
The young woman is so surprised she falls over in the street while her mother is seen laughing so hard she has to lean on a car for support as she turns away.
The video was posted on Twitter and has amassed more than 1.3 million views and 60,000 likes.
Many online viewers said the woman appeared to be world-class in the noble art of the ‘chanclazo volador’ (flying flip-flop), reportedly a popular way for Mexican mothers to punish their disobedient daughters.
One user said: ‘That flip-flop has a heat-seeking radar for sure’.
Another added: ‘All my respect and admiration to that lady! That should be an Olympic sport!’
