If not, the dad is an idiot. But one would think the rider would have seen them quite a bit prior and adjusted his line.

Just a theory.
I saw that but figured the rider was much further from the daddy / daughter than the pic made them look. So the angles were different than it would appear. If this was a 500 or so mm lens, the foreshortening would give this effect. It'd also mean that there wasn't an imminent danger of the rider hitting the two.
