This disturbing surveillance footage coming out of Chongqing yesterday shows a girl around ten years old picking up a one-and-a-half-year-old baby who was accidentally left in an elevator by his mother, then suddenly throwing him to the ground, aggressively kicking and beating him and eventually throwing him off of a balcony, according to reports.
In the footage, the boy’s mother hysterically describes mistakenly leaving her son in the elevator when she pulled out his toy bike and the doors quickly closed behind her.
Cameras inside the elevator then captured a young girl getting in the elevator and picking up the baby. She holds the child for seconds, then slams him to the ground, kicking him forcefully and pushing him out of the elevator doors upon opening on the 25th floor.
The ground outside of the building shows small pools of blood near where the baby was found, and broken sticks of bushes below the building suggests that he was thrown out of a window or balcony by the young girl.
The baby was taken to the hospital
where he reportedly succumbed to his injuries.
Update: The baby has awoken in the hospital and police have said that they cannot press charges against the girl, as she is too young.
