(Daily Mail) This is the shocking moment a traffic officer body slams a mother holding a child in her arms in the middle of a public street in eastern China.
It is reported that the mother and the police official had been in an argument over illegal parking issues in the city of Shanghai.
The footage has since been shared on Chinese social media and has caused an outcry online. People have accused the police officer of abusing his powers and causing harm to the young child.
The toddler girl cried out loud as she fell with her mother, hitting the pavement.
The incident is said to have happened at 10:30am local time today in Songjiang district in Shanghai, eastern China.
A propaganda department officer from Songjiang Police Bureau told the Beijing Times that the woman was not happy when she was issued a fine for illegal parking.
’She was confronting the officer and pushed him two to three times,’ said the officer.
The mother and the girl were taken to the hospital for inspection.
Songjiang police also issued an official statement confirming the incident and will look into the matter for investigation.
