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.
Why be born again when you can just grow up?
