A heartbreaking video of a heartless man mercilessly beating a baby has caused outrage on social media .
Atinkanews.net sighted the video on Instagram , as it has apparently gone viral.
The video shows the seemingly upset man trying to get the baby to stand on his own, but the boy couldn’t, so he slaps him across the face multiple time and doesn’t stop, even as the child cries.
He then positions the baby beside a table, with the child’s hands on the table for support, and tries to get the baby to stand on his own. But the baby’s legs wobble and this angers the man so, he slaps the baby on the stomach twice.
While this is going on, there’s a boy seen lying on a couch. Someone is also behind the camera because the baby is seen looking at the person while crying, but the person doesn’t come to the baby’s aid.
The man then carries the baby away from the table, lifts him high into the air, and drops him on the floor. He does this multiple times, then continues beating the baby again.
It is not clear how many people are in the room as this happens but voices can be heard in the background
Instagram users are angered by the man’s actions and they are calling for help in identifying the man and reporting him to the appropriate authorities for child abuse.
Viewers may find this footage upsetting and distressing.
