Clip of baby's beating goes viral in SA

2012-05-10 16:59
Cape Town – A woman seen beating her baby in a video that has gone viral in South Africa, was arrested in Malaysia last year.

WARNING, GRAPHIC CONTENT:


The footage, shared on various social media sites and over BBM, shows a Malaysian mother hitting her 8-month-old baby with a pillow then pinching, slapping and kicking the baby. She also hits the baby with a cellphone.

The woman in her 20s constantly screams "Diamlah bodoh!" which translates as "Shut up, stupid!" to the baby while another woman films the abuse.

Another young child is seen in the video witnessing the assault.

The Royal Malaysian Police have confirmed the video was taken in May last year.

The woman was arrested after the police in Malaysia received "nearly 300 complaints".

She is currently serving out an 18-month prison sentence with the woman who filmed the incident.

The video was posted to Youtube by various users, but has since been removed.
