Schoolboy error: Father allows son to play with jet washer, pays inevitable price

A Belgium-based father's decision to let his three-year-old help out with cleaning the yard backfired spectacularly, when the youngster turned a jet washer on him.

Simon Newport was filming footage of his son, Jack, washing down surfaces in the backyard of the family home in Oppuurs when the young boy began feeling a little mischievous, forcing his father to flee to the bottom of his garden.
