Hanoi authorities have shut down a daycare in an apartment building after a video emerged online showing one of the teachers there violently slapped a 3-year-old boy, Tuoi Tre reported.
In the video, Nguyen Thi Van Anh of the daycare Tuoi Hoa can be seen feeding the boy. After the boy vomits, she pulls him to a corner and slaps his face several times. She also twists his ears and pinch his thighs.
The boy’s parents said Anh had apologized and begged them not to take legal actions against her.
They said they were shocked and angry when watching the video, recorded by a parent of another child on Wednesday. But they said they will not file a complaint.
“We just want her to realize the mistake and not to repeat it,” the boy’s father said.
Local authorities said they had asked police in Thanh Tri District to investigate the case.
