In this amazing video, a golden eagle swoops down and tries to snatch a baby at a park in Montreal! Fortunately, he or she didn’t make it far with the child.

Can you imagine if the bird absconded with a live human?

We can only laugh because, other than a bit of a scare, the child involved was unscathed … and the slow-motion replay set to the Chariots of Fire theme is amazing.

Also, the filmmaker’s reaction is unintentionally hilarious.

UPDATE: Apparently this is a hoax. Well done, hoax.
