Police are investigating this video showing a patient stomping on a young boy’s injured foot after he and his mum apparently jump the queue at a clinic.
The man whose identity is still unknown had been waiting his turn at the traditional Chinese medicine clinic in Haifeng County in South China’s Guangdong Province on 13th May.

However, the young boy who came in with his mum were allegedly given priority by clinic staff when they arrived to collect his medication.
CCTV video from the business shows the doctor tending to the boy, who is wearing sandals, when the impatient customer springs up from his seat and walks over to the child.
He then angrily stomps on the boy’s foot, leaving the child and other witnesses stunned.
The irate patient then kicks out at the clinic staff before attempting to trash the business by breaking a chair.
According to the clinic owner, the man later stormed out saying: “I came here earlier than he did. Why are you giving him his medicine first?”
Authorities say they are searching for the suspect.
The boy and others in the clinic are not believed to have been seriously harmed.
