VIRAL: Video captures woman beating her own mother

Netizens sought help from authorities after a video that captured a woman beating her own mother, who is believed to be disabled, went viral.

The 1-minute, 7-second clip posted Thursday night was taken inside one of the residences in Belvedere Subdivision, Barangay Paradahan 1 in Tanza, Cavite.

In it, the woman is seen wearing what appears to be a white piece of cloth that certainly looks like a blindfold. It is believed that she's using it to cover her nose to get rid of the foul smell coming from her mother's filthy room.

The uploader, a neighbor of both the victim and attacker, said the beating and badmouthing takes place everyday, but this is the first time a video was taken as the abusive acts were usually done privately and only the voice of the old woman screaming in pain can be heard.

The heartbreaking video has been viewed almost half a million times on Facebook alone as of 8 a.m. today.
