Terrifying Footage Shows Care Taker Abusing an Elderly Woman in a Nursing Home

A heartless man filmed beating an elderly and confused woman has sparked outrage on social media.

The shocking 11 second video, which appears to have been filmed in a care facility in Taiwan, shows a frail and scared woman huddled on the floor and clinging to the metal frame of a single bed.

In a room full of bedridden elderly and sick people, the man approaches the disoriented and obviously upset women and gestures for her to get back into her bed.

But before she even has time to get up he slaps her hard in her face.

Shockingly, the woman seems to know the beating is coming and protectively covers her face before he even rises his hand.

Dressed only in black shorts and a small t-shirt the woman, who has swollen feet, is unable to get up and shuffles helplessly on the floor while trying to escape her attacker.

As she tries to escape back to the head of her bed he continues to hit her and make no attempt to help her up.

The video has been viewed more than 5M times since it was posted on Facebook earlier this week.
