Woman beats child with shovel


The Cyber Crime Unit of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) has been ordered to investigate a video circulating on various social media sites yesterday, in which a woman used a shovel to beat a young boy about his body.

The video, which is four minutes 37 seconds long, depicts an older woman, dressed in blue jeans and white jersey with black stripes, hitting a child with a shovel about his body as he lies on the ground screaming for the ordeal to be over.

Two toddlers were seen looking on as the woman hit the boy about his chest and head.

In the video, the boy even picks up a chair to try and defend himself as the woman violently swings the shovel to hit him. The woman also repeatedly hurled obscenities at the child, cursing him as he tried to defend himself.
