A video footage about a man stomping a toddler sparked anger on Weibo recently.

The footage was taken on May 4 from a surveillance video on a street of Luochuan County, Yan’an city of Shaanxi province. It shows that a boy was sweeping the floor by the street when suddenly a man kicked him over and kept trampling on him.

The violence lasted about one minute when several people passed by without doing anything. The man was later subdued by a few men from a neighboring shop.

The three-year-old boy was found with a fractured skull and was sent to Xi’an, the provincial capital for treatment.

The man, detained by police, was found to have a mental illness history.

Further investigation is underway.
