A video showing a man viciously kicking a little boy right in the back after the kid had happened to bump into his daughter while playing has gone viral over the weekend. The man has since been detained by local police following an all-out human flesh search by netizens.
The incident took place at around 8:20pm on February 27th at a shopping mall in Dongying, Shandong province. In the video, a boy and girl are seen playing together at a playground inside the mall. The boy accidentally bumps into the girl sending her falling to the ground.
Immediately, the girl’s father steps forward and delivers a vicious kick straight to the poor kid’s spine. The boy is then left crying and writhing in pain on the ground as the father returns to his seat like nothing happened.
According to The Paper, the boy’s family argued with the man, but he denied having kicked their kid. Of course, the video shows otherwise and it soon went viral on WeChat.
Outraged netizens then conducted a human flesh search, tracking down the man’s work address as well as his phone number.
On the night of February 29th, the local police announced on their public Weibo account that the suspect surnamed Li had been detained and they were in the process of investigating the incident further.
