A little girl is stuffed into a sack and tortured by her own grandmother and aunt in a sickening footage. Police have launched an investigation after the shocking footage, which has been viewed more than 10million times, came to light.
No suspects have been identified or arrested, according to police in Lianjiang City, in South China’s Guangdong Province. It is unclear what the young girl did to deserve the inhumane treatment as the video starts with the child already inside the white sack usually used to catch snakes or other reptiles.
It shows the child’s grandmother poking and prodding the outside of the sack, causing the girl to cry, and then also rolling the bag along the ground. Later in the horrific footage, a younger woman - believed to be her aunt - can be seen whipping the child with a stick while her gran films from the sidelines.
The women speak in a dialect consistent with those living in Lianjiang, where the cops said they were taking the case seriously and are now searching for the authors of the video.
The pair could face serious punishment if found guilty of child abuse, including several years in jail.
