The moment a woman drops her baby on a pavement so that she can throw punches in a brutal fight has been captured by shocking footage.
The little girl was dropped when a brawl erupted between two women on a housing estate in the United States.
After having a heated argument the pair square up to each other before raining down punches and grabbing on to each other’s clothes.
In an incident that will horrify parents the baby hits the concrete on her back, but it is not seen if her head hits the concrete in the process.
It is unclear how the fracas started but within seconds the women go from an aggressive argument to a vicious battle.
While the violence is brutal it is the complete disregard shown for the well-being of the baby that is most upsetting.
