- The children were dribbling a soccer ball when de Jesus’ and dos Santos’ son accidentally fell to the ground and started crying

A security camera at a playground in Brazil captured the moment a father forced his son to smack another boy’s face.
Both children were playing together with a soccer ball last Sunday while other youngsters played nearby before the situation escalated.
The victim gets in front of the boy, who is trying to kick the ball but looses his balance and crashes to the ground.
A bevy of kids gathered around the injured seven-year-old, who is assisted to his feet before walking away.

The condominium’s security camera shows the moment Alexandre Campos de Jesus runs into the playground with his son – the boy who fell.
He walks to the goal post and grabs the child by his arm and places him in front of his son, who smacks him.
De Jesus’ wife, Danielle Cavalcanti dos Santos, who was visiting her parents in the housing complex, makes matters worse when she races into the playground.
She then shoves the defenseless boy to the ground, causing him to strike his head on the pavement as other children look on.
Brazilian news outlet Metropoles reported the victim was visiting the same complex, spending the weekend with his aunt Jucinea Nascimento, 43.
‘It hurt a lot. The head, the neck and the back,’ the injured boy told Brazilian news outlet G1. ‘He hit me hard!’

Danielle Cavalcanti dos Santos was not too happy that her son injured himself while playing with a child at a park outside her parents’ home in Brazil, and then attacked a seven-year-old boy
His mother was distraught at the sight of her son being beaten in broad daylight.
‘They held him with his hands behind him,’ Jucimara Nascimento, 38, told Metropoles.
‘My son had no right to defend himself from the blow he had taken… To see your son attacked without the right to defend himself, I would like to have been in his place at the time.’
‘They held him with his hands behind him. My son could not defend himself from the blow he had taken.’
According to the Civil Police in the capital city of Brasilia, the abusive parents could face three months to a year behind bars and perhaps even more because a minor was involved.
