Unusual Behavoir / Shaking Head

In all the years I have been watching the Moorhens with their babies, I have never witnessed this behavoir. It was very sad to watch. This adult only shook 2 out of the 4 babies heads. He (Im assumming here) would just grab the babies heads and start violently shaking them. The babies didn't seem to be harmed in anyway though. Thats what so strange about it.
