As CNN reports, the video shows a 4-year old Chinese toddler running through the snow in New York, while the family was on vacation there.

The boy is just wearing underwear and shoes.  On the video, he's begging his father to pick him up.

The father explains to CNN he's an "Eagle dad" and this was part of a training regime to toughen up his son.  The boy was reportedly born premature.  It's ignited a firestorm in China, where some say this equals child abuse.
