Police are investigating after horrifying footage showed a mother cruelly beating her tiny baby across the head. The mother, named as Aygul Kozhabaevna, was reportedly filmed by an unnamed eight-year-old girl who witnessed the brutal act.
It has been alleged that the woman was ‘teaching her child a lesson’ because the baby refused to stop crying. The footage originated in Kazakhstan, in the city of Almaty.
The woman doing the beating is reportedly a migrant worker from neighbouring Uzbekistan who had travelled to Almaty with her family looking for a better future.
The mother was staying with a friend and it was the friend’s daughter who allegedly filmed the video. Police are now said to be hunting for the woman as their investigation continues.
In the footage, the woman speaks to the child in a low voice, but then slaps the baby hard across the face multiple times.
Viewers may find this footage upsetting and distressing.
