**warning** Some may find the CCTV footage distressing
Shocking CCTV footage shows the moment a man appears to kick a defenceless two-year-old girl to the ground.
The shopper was holding on to a younger baby boy in a China shopping centre at the time of the incident.
When the little girl attempts to touch the baby being held in a standing position, the man - believed to be the baby boy's father - reacts in a violent manner.
In the attached video footage, he appears to kick and strike the toddler, who then falls to the ground.
Her mother told local media after the incident that her daughter had only wanted to hug the man's baby boy.
