A father in Kyrgyzstan was filmed forcefully kicking his son because the toddler was not able to stand up in the snow.

Shocking video shows the father, who has been reported by local media as 50-years-old, kicking the child across the pavement in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan.

Both father and son are dressed in bulky winter clothes and it is presumed that the child has fallen over – it is not known whether by accident.

The child tries to stand up but keeps toppling backwards, lying on the ground as his father just stares at him.

Local media also reported that the father had been identified and arrested after the video was posted on social media. His name has not been released.
