Leaving your kids with a babysitter is always a gamble, especially if you haven’t known them for very long.
Unless you’ve set up a nanny cam, you have no idea what they may or may not be doing with your children. That’s why so many parents have such a difficult time trusting anybody to take care of their little ones, and it’s hard to blame them when you see evidence of abusive babysitters — case in point, this security footage taken from a building in Zhengzhou City, China.
Last week, a distraught mom called the police after watching disturbing footage of her toddler in an elevator with the woman she hired from a babysitting agency. Moments after waving goodbye to the mother, the 42-year-old, who is only known by her surname, Li, started punching the child repeatedly.
The building’s security guard, who had alerted the mother, was the first to witness the upsetting video below.
Li was arrested on abuse charges later that day. Police are also investigating the agency she worked for. It isn’t clear whether the child sustained any injuries, so we can only hope the poor tot is okay.
