'not the answer'
In the video a woman, who appears to be
pregnant, is seen beating a boy who looks to be
in his teenage years with a shovel.
As the boy resists, the woman stands on his
arms and chest in order to deliver the blows.
During the recording the person taping is
heard saying he will post the video on Facebook.
