A mother was filmed whipping her daughter angrily in public while the latter knelt down and slapped herself, as punishment for cutting class.
The incident took place in Taiwan's Pingutng City, and online reports state that passers-by had tried to stop the mother but were too frightened to argue with her.
Cops soon arrived and stopped her. The girl was sent back home to her father and social services have stepped in to prevent future conflict.
