When asked who hurt him the little Russian boy seems frightened and replies “mum” in a faint voice
The innocent tot can be seen sitting in accident and emergency detailing the horrific abuse he has received at the hands of his own mother.
The harrowing video shows the boy with his arm in a sling
Footage shows the child, known only as Vania, being treated for a broken arm after his mum said he fell from a swing.
But other patients became suspicious after seeing how the mum treated the child at the hospital in the western Russian city of Kaliningrad.
They claim she used “barbaric” methods to keep him quiet as he cried out with the pain of his fractured arm.
She allegedly beat the boy, who was around three-years-old, and threw him around like he was a “nasty kitten”.
So shocked onlookers decided to ask the youngster what had really happened to him.
They used a mobile phone to make a video capturing the little boy’s shocking replies.
He also points out where his mother hit him to concerned staff
In the footage a woman’s voice can be heard asking: “Who hit you? Who broke your arm?”
The helpless little boy seems frightened before he replies in a faint voice: “Mum.”
He is then asked where his mum hits him before pointing to his shoulder and neck.
Viewers were horrified after the short clip of the little boy was posted on the internet.
The police have viewed the footage and it is believed that they have now launched an investigation.
The regional child ombudsman Tatiana Baturina has promised to look into the claims made in the video.
