    Somehow this mother thought it was all in good fun.

    Shocking footage of a 4-year-old child being playfully tossed off a bridge while his mother is cheering has left onlookers — and now authorities — searching for answers.

    The video shows an unnamed woman's boyfriend tossing her small child off a Devonshire railroad bridge, in Montesano, Washington — sending the tiny tot plummeting 27-feet.

    “This is what happens when some parents just don't care,” Kaylub Fawley, who witnessed the incident, captioned the video on Facebook.

    “This is a woman me and all my friends witnessed letting a ‘stranger’ throw her 4 1/2 year old son off the bridge into the water for fun!”

    Fawley, 18, who took out his smartphone to record the terrifying incident as it played out, described how he looked on in total horror as the man chucked the child into water abound with large underwater boulders — which even experienced swimmers are wary of — as the mother stood by cheering.

    “I looked up and was like, ‘Whoa, there’s a kid up there’ — I immediately started recording,” the 18-year-old told The Washington Post.

    “This guy just threw the kid right off the bridge, and he smacked down right on his neck.”

    In the footage, panicked onlookers can be heard screaming as the child’s small, frail body smacks off the surface of the water upon impact.

    “As soon as that kid hit the water, he went straight down and straight back up,” Fawley said.

    “He was just screaming the whole time.”

    The child’s lifejacket eventually pulled him to the surface of the river, which Fawley said is about eight to 12 feet deep.

    “When he landed, I thought he broke his neck,” another witness, Brianna Jones, told The Washington Post.

    “Usually, people that jump off the bridge are my age or older,” the 19-year-old said, adding that the child came close to hitting his head off a metal beam on his descent.

    Following the incident, witnesses quickly made way to the child and berated the careless mom, who reportedly became hostile.

    “We all started freaking out and yelling at her, ‘You can’t do that!” Jones told the Post.

    “She said, ‘He’s my kid, and it’s none of your business.'”

    Within 15 minutes of the close call, law enforcement officers arrived at the scene and the boy was assessed by paramedics.

    “The police officer watched it several times, and he was pretty upset,” Fawley said.

    “I kept asking if the little boy was all right, and the cop said he was fine, but he was shaken up pretty bad.”

    Prosecutors are investigating the reckless pair and have not yet decided whether to charge the mother with child endangerment, the Post reported.

    A comment request from the Daily News from the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office is pending as of Tuesday morning.

    What's she planning for an encore? Taking him to the zoo and throwing him to the lions?
