A taxi driver in Hanoi has been suspended after a video clip went viral, which showed a baby in the driver's seat last Monday.

Driver Nguyen Van Hoc, 25, put a nine-month-old passenger on his lap and let the boy play with the wheel, his boss at the Ba Sao Taxi Firm told news website VnExpress Tuesday.

Hoc left one hand on the wheel while the other held the baby.

The four-seat car was full as Hoc drove the baby and his family to a pediatric hospital for a check-up.

Vu Quoc Huy, director of the taxi firm, said the company is waiting for a punishment to be handed down by the Hanoi traffic police.

"The driver's behavior is hard to accept as it can cause danger to passengers in the car and other travelers," Huy said.
