A shocking video of a woman abusing her son has sent shockwaves across the internet. In the video, the woman is seen engaging in reprehensible behaviour, kicking the defenceless baby boy multiple times as he lies on the ground.
The distressing footage also captures her placing her foot on the boy’s chest to the neck area, stomping it repeatedly as he lies on his back. The boy began crying out at the end of the clip.
The gravity of the situation is exacerbated by the fact that she recorded these horrifying actions herself.
