The horrifying moment a university student attempts to kick a noisy child at a Chinese restaurant in northern Dalian, China, is now on display for the world to see.
According to reports, the student was fed up with the girl screaming which she claimed had disturbed her romantic date. However that isn't exactly what happened.
In the Hang Lung shopping mall at around 7:30 p.m., a young girl had come on a date. A child sitting on the table behind the couple can be seen standing up and moving around.
It was at this point that the girl gets up and tries to viciously kick the 4-year-old. The person accompanying the girl intervenes and tries to break up the fight, but the brawl only exacerbates, with the mother of the girl joining in. At one point, the girl threw a bottle at a friend of the mother.
The student then flees. Afterward, the mother of the child squabbles with the restaurant worker who tried to restrain her.
The university student has since reportedly apologized for her behavior in an interview. She also said that she had reacted that way because a relative had once been startled by a disruption in a restaurant and had almost ended up in hospital.
Police are investigating the incident.
