PETALING JAYA: A video of an elderly woman being beaten up has gone viral on social media.
In the 48-second video, the victim who is clad in red and seen squatting on the floor is hit several times by an unknown person.
When the person hits her one more time after a brief pause, she tosses water from a bowl at the attacker who then pushes her down onto the floor before hitting her more violently.
At this point, several girls try to help the elderly lady and try to prevent the aggressor from hitting her.
She appears to be unhurt and is later helped to her feet. The video also recorded expletives in Tamil and people laughing loudly.
Elderly woman says assault video was just a joke
