Malaysians are outraged by disturbing footage of a preschool teacher abusing a child under her care at a kindergarten in Shah Alam, Selangor.

A 10-second clip that’s gone viral online caught the woman throwing a little boy to the ground, twice, in front of a classroom full of other children.

The video showed the woman first shoving the child to the ground before picking him up by the arms only to throw him to the ground again.

Apparently, another teacher was also present in the room during the incident.

Teacher sacked

According to reports, the abusive teacher was immediately fired from her job.

The Shah Alam police also confirmed that the child’s mother came to report on what happened and that investigators already took statements from the individual who recorded the video.

They’ve also called the now ex-teacher in for questioning.
