Thailand police have launched manhunt for a woman who nearly killed her son by tying him up with plastic cord on railings outside a food market in Nonthaburi province near Bangkok. She was allegedly punishing him.
The roadside incident caught the attention of passersby who gathered to witness what was going on. One of the witnesses recorded a video of the bizarre form of child punishment.
In the viral video, an angry woman can be seen yelling at her son, whose wrongdoing remains unknown, as she forces him to bend and holds her head down with her foot. She then straddles the railings with a thick cord and wraps the string around the boy's neck, arms and back.
The petrified young lad can be heard screaming and saying: "I cant breathe, I cant breathe", even as the cruel mother pitilessly tightens the cord.
The mother completely refuses to listen to her pleading son and goes away, leaving the boy tightly tight up like a goat.
The video immediately hit the internet and sparked outrage as most people condemned the act. It has since attracted some two million views. News of the cruel punishment was reportedly leaked to the authorities by the witness who took the video.
"The mother has a bad heart. She was spotted at the entrance to the temple near the Park Kret market," says Corporal Rangsan Namsang.
The boy was allegedly released later by the mother after she was convinced the punishment was sufficient to deter the boy from repeating whatever mistaken he had committed.
Corporal Namsang says the authorities are already searching for the cruel mother to shed light on what exactly drove her into torturing her own child.
