Updated: Wednesday, July 24 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

A Texas father is drawing criticism online for a video of his 16-month-old daughter swimming alone in a pool.

Adam Christensen posted the video of his daughter online. He said that his daughter was taught by a professional swim instructor,  and that she is safe in the water.

"She's gasping, but that's normal," Christensen said. "She's trained and she knows that all she has to do is flip over. I love my little girl and i would never do anything that would hurt her.

Christensen said that his daughter swims up to three times a day, and can dive under water to pick up toys.
