Shocking footage of a teacher savagely beating a female student during class at a school in Henan has been making rounds on the web.
In the video, which was uploaded late last night, the student in question appears to let out a loud howl while the teacher is lecturing, prompting him to slap her over the head. To his surprise, she begins to fight back.
The teacher quickly gains the upper hand, throwing her to the floor. Throughout the video the sound of crying can be heard, as some students are scared to tears by the dispute. A few others appear to try and intervene.
Perhaps this particular student was emboldened by news out of Guangdong last week, where a 4th grader beat up and hospitalized his teacher in a dispute over homework.
As of yet, no reports have surfaced as to what took place in the classroom prior to the start of the video.
