By JEFFREY BIRCHWORTH, AP ReporterA video showing the moment a video camera in a parent’s care snapped the image of a 14-year-old girl’s naked buttocks was viewed by more than 1.2 million people.
Selena Quinta, who has autism, is autistic herself and the mother of five, shared the video on Facebook with her 3-year old daughter.
The video was shot by her mother, Sheryl Quintanila, who was also a caregiver at the time.
The couple says the video is their daughter saying “hello” to her boyfriend, whom she says was touching her buttocks.
The girl says, “Thank you.”
The video went viral and was viewed more than 6.7 million times by Tuesday afternoon.
The video shows the girl, who is wearing her mother’s white shirt, and the boyfriend holding hands.
The boyfriend says, “‘Hi Mommy, how are you?’ and the girl responds, ‘I’m fine.’
The boyfriend turns around and says, ‘You better be.'”
The couple posted the video to Facebook and it was shared more than 3,000 times on Wednesday.
The teen is now wearing a white shirt and shorts.
They said the video shows Selena telling her mother and grandmother, “It’s okay.”
The teen has been placed in foster care, but the parents are staying with her.
Selina Quintanillas father, Patrick Quintanillas, said he’s disappointed by the video.
“It shouldn’t have gone viral and I’m very disappointed in what happened,” he said.
“She shouldn’t be embarrassed.
She should be happy.”
A video of Selina Quinta’s parents meeting with their 14-month-old daughter has gone viral.
A video shot by Selena’s mother, who worked in the same caregiver program, has gone global.
The mother shared a video of her daughter telling her that “she’s a great girl” and “she’ll make a great mom” while hugging her grandmother.
Selenas father said he doesn’t believe the girl made any explicit threats.
He said the girl’s mother didn’t have a choice.
Selene’s father said the couple was trying to help their daughter.
“It’s not a threat,” Patrick Quintana said.
The girl’s grandmother, Sharon Quintanillo, also shared a picture of the video with her Twitter followers.
She also shared the photo of the boy, who said, “Hello mommy.”
A group of social workers, who have been helping the couple, said they believe the incident is a case of inappropriate touching.
“We are appalled by this incident.
We are concerned by this situation and we are working closely with our child’s caregiver,” said Marissa O’Toole, who oversees the program for the Washington County Child Advocacy Center.
