A delivery driver was caught in the act by throwing a pack of baby bottles and dolls onto a balcony on the first floor in central London.
The driver, subcontracted by a third party, took the strange decision after he rang the doorbell of an Amazon customer who was not at home.
The client, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he expected his wife to be at home, since she is currently on maternity leave, but had an appointment at that time.
He told Mail Online: "The package was bottles, dummies and other baby pieces because I had a baby four months ago. So it was probably the least fragile thing in history!
"But the point is that he (the delivery driver) does not know."

The video was recorded last Friday in a camera on the front door connected to the customer's phone. He said he would usually use the Ring app to tell the courier to leave the package in a junk closet by the door of his house when he was not at home.
The call was lost on this occasion and it was when the driver chose to launch the package of a story, without thinking that it was being recorded.
He told Mail Online: "If the package had been heavier, it could have caused damage to my property.
& # 39; Released him as a rugby player, as a rotating pass to my balcony! The fact is that there are glass windows there, so it could have been much worse. "
He added: "My wife came home confused to find the package out there."
The customer said that nothing was damaged, but it could have been different with a heavier package
The client posted to his LinkedIn account saying: & # 39; #busted Amazon. Apparently, throwing a package onto the balcony of my first floor is an acceptable way to deliver these days … & # 39;
His video has garnered several hundred likes and more than 50,000 visits.
The London-based client said he was happy with the way Amazon solved his problem, offering him compensation of £ 40.
He added: "I've dealt with Amazon many times and I'm happy. There is nothing broken, so that's fine, but I'm worried what is causing this behavior.
When posting on LinkedIn, people were not surprised by the behavior of the driver and were even impressed with its release.
Fiona Watson commented: "Things often happen similar to our deliveries, it's like doing a treasure hunt every time.

"I think the problem is how little people pay for the delivery and probably for delivery, so they rush as much as possible, not wanting to take the time to get notes through the door or find a neighbor to accept the package. . & # 39;
Jake Mattock published: "Regardless of what companies earn or what the delivery drivers pay you, you should not throw things out of people.
That said, if it were clothing or something non-fragile, you could actually appreciate it being there when you get home. Troubleshooter. & # 39;
Byron Warmington said: "Congratulations to that man for a great launch."
An Amazon spokesperson said: "We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and we expect each package to be handled with care.
"We have notified the correct equipment internally and we have worked directly with the client on issues related to the delivery of their packages."
