Three young boys pretended to kidnap and behead girls at gunpoint in a twisted game echoing the gang violence on the city’s streets.
The footage, believed to be filmed in Acapulco, Mexico, captured the youngsters as they took part in the shocking childhood game.
The boys were seen playing with two girls – who were sitting on the ground with their hands behind their backs as the clip began.

One of the three then lifted a girl to her feet, and could be heard saying ‘let’s take them away’ as the smallest boy grabbed the other girl around her neck.
A boy in a blue vest then pointed a toy gun at his ‘prisoner’s’ head, marching her forward with her hands held behind her back.
The two girls were also shown to have something in their mouths as they were taken to a nearby table.
They were then each bent face-forward over the table in turn, and the boys pretended to behead them with their hands as a woman laughed in the background.
The clip has been shared by local media and viewers have criticised the parents of the children for allowing them to play such twisted games.

Acapulco is one of the most dangerous cities in the world – and is currently undergoing a wave of violence.
Mariana Espinosa said: ‘Stupid people who do not know values and therefore it made them laugh. It’s not the kids’ fault. They learn that from their parents.’
Lozano Rosa added: ‘What a sad thing, for now it is only a game, but later it will have consequences. Destroyed childhoods.’
A Citizen Council for Public Security and Penal Justice report last year covering over 50 cities concluded that the Mexican port is the second most dangerous city in the world, only behind Caracas, the Venezuelan capital.
