Video of Marco Rubio tossing a football — and hitting a kid — goes viral

Amateur video of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio playfully tossing a football while visiting Iowa Monday is going viral, not for its Kennedy-esque quality, the Associated Press reports.

Instead, the Republican presidential candidate lays out a wobbly pass to a boy, while visiting a family in a Des Moines suburb.

The boy's arms extend too far, as he runs for the ball which squarely bounces off the skyward facing receiver's face.

Rubio is seen moving toward the child and offering a concerned, "Oh," in the video lasting less than five seconds.

What is unclear from the video is whether the boy ran the wrong pattern, or if Rubio's pass was off the mark.

However, it appeared from the short clip that the boy sustained no career-ending injuries.
