The unbelievable scene happened somewhere in Mexico when a mother walked out into the street to pursue her daughter who ran away after a family row.
The girl already gained at least 30 meters down the street when her mother took her sandal off and lined up the seemingly impossible shot.
A man can be heard in the background of the clip, saying: ‘Go on, hit her, hit her!’
Despite the distance, the angry mother launched her flip-flop at her fleeing teenage daughter with an incredible long range shot.
Incredibly, the flip-flop flies high into the air like an arrow and shockingly hitting her daughter between the shoulders.
Stunned, the teen shrieks before falling to the ground and rolling about in the street and brings her to a halt.
