- A father filmed himself hanging and hitting his four-year-old son while drunk.
- After hiding for two days, he was finally arrested.
A video went viral on social media platforms wherein a father filmed himself hitting his son, who was hanging upside down.
The father kept on asking the four-year-old if his mom is happy with a certain decision that he made and when the boy failed to answer, the father proceeded on hitting him.
Even as the child began to cry, his father still didn’t stop punching and hitting the kid.
According to an investigation by the Sta. Rosa, Laguna police, the incident happened on December 25, in the middle of Christmas Day.
The boy’s aunt asked the police for help and the child was rescued the day after. He is currently in the care of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
