Older folks today are more energetic, sporty, busy and more independent than ever before. They are living longer and are in better health. But as the population of older people quickly grow, so does the hidden problem of elder abuse, exploitation and neglect.
There is disturbing new video that has been making the rounds on social media. A clip of what appears to be a woman shouting at and physically abusing an old woman in a wheelchair.
The viral video was originally uploaded on Facebook by Ateven Loa with the following caption:
I'm afraid this old woman also experience these things.
The video begins with the younger lady repeatedly slapping on the elderly woman’s arm then shouting and insulting the vulnerable and helpless woman in a wheelchair before slapping her in the face. Several bystanders witnessed the incident, but no one intervened.
But that’s not the end of it because the old woman had to endure more physical abuse before bystanders tried to intervene.
The incident is believed to have taken place in Hong Kong.
Heaven got eyes don’t worry. She’ll definitely grow old one day too.
