'The perils of twerking': Mom booty bumps her baby to the floor in viral video

With one forceful thrust, it was a twerk like no other.

A Utah woman practicing her dance moves accidentally booty-bumped her little girl, knocking the tyke flat on her back, as the mom fell to her knees laughing.

“I decided to enter an online dance-off for moms, but was a little hesitant about posting a clip of me dancing on the Internet,” mom Summer Knowlden wrote on YouTube, where she posted a video of the mishap. “I wanted to practice a little before and this is an outtake from my ‘warm-up.’ It's too good not to share!!”

Don't worry, no children were harmed in the making of this video. Her daughter didn’t even cry. “She just laid on the ground a little surprised,” Knowlden wrote. “All is well.”

The video, now going viral, aired on TODAY Thursday, where the anchors couldn’t get enough of it. Willie Geist captioned it perfectly: “The perils of twerking.”
