A Twitter video has emerged showing four teens kicking and punching a pregnant woman and her child in the head outside their home in Brooklyn, Illinois.
The viral video shows three female teens punching the body of the pregnant woman as she stood outside with her young daughter.
The three teens were pushing her onto the ground, pulling her hair and punching her when a man joined them and kicked the toddler in the head.
When the mother managed to stand up and walk towards the door, the man kicked her in the back and she hit her head on the wall.
The video quickly gained more than 230,000 views on Twitter but the attackers haven’t been identified.
One Twitter user wrote: “The way the baby was hanging on her mom’s leg and then he kicked the baby y’all are f***ing sick. this is against the code y’all don’t jump and y’all don’t fight in front of kids.”
Another commented: “He kicked that baby on purpose. Look how far he is from the mother when the kick lands. It’s no way the mother was his intended target.”
A third said: “For one why do they feel it’s okay to jump her while a baby is holding on to the mom’s leg? Two when they saw he kicked the baby they should’ve stopped right there like why are people standing there like its okay.”
However, the mother of the man involved in the fight has defended her son. She wrote on Facebook: “He didn’t try to kick that baby, he tried to jump over the baby on to her and made a mistake. My kid is not the type to kick a baby, accidents happen.”
