According to UK Daily Mail, the child would not stop crying during the ceremony; causing the clergyman to lose his temper, lift his left hand and hit the baby in the face.

But when the crying doesn't stop, the priest seems to grow frustrated and slaps the baby in the face.

A man and a woman holding a child in her arms, look very shocked and trying to snatch it from the hands of the priest.

The clip, which has been widely circulating online, shows the shocked reaction as the a man who appears to be the father is forced to wrestle the child from the French clergyman.

"The child was bawling and I needed to turn his head so I could pour the water".

The disturbing video, posted on Wednesday, has generated 245,898 views and 389 comments, but it is unclear where it was filmed. The slap occurs about 22 seconds into the video. "If this ever happens to my child best believe there's gonna a lot more then just slapping happening to his face".

A shocking incident occurred in France church, where a footage of a priest slapping a crying baby during baptism has made its way around the internet, sparking outrage among social media users.

A couple presumed to be the parents is heard gasping at this in the video. Added another: "A priest slaps my baby and I'm putting him on the cross". "I would have gone ballistic if that was any of my kids".

He hugs the child to his chest, possibly to try and calm him down.
