Bystanders film moment teen stomps on head of girl, seven, and dont intervene

A mum was left fuming when a video emerged allegedly showing her daughter being violently bashed at a playground by a teenager.

The disturbing incident happened at Smithfield in Cairns, Australia, on Sunday (March 26) as a bystander filmed the seven-year-old girl appearing to be stomped on by a 13-year-old girl.

In the video, the teen allegedly throws punches at the victim by a slide and stomps on her head while others can be heard giggling.

Bystanders watched and filmed as the incident unfolded.

The child's mum, from Queensland, was livid after seeing the harrowing footage online and slammed the witnesses for not stepping in to help.

She said her daughter returned home on Sunday afternoon with severe bruising on her head and was rushed to the emergency department for treatment.

The mum told The Cairns Post: "I'm in such disbelief that bystanders decided to film it instead of stop it, and even worse, post it online.

"She was out playing like kids should and this happened to her.

"She's a tough little cookie…ultimately I want her to understand that this isn't normal and this definitely isn't okay."

The mum also sent a strong message to the public, saying: "I'm not going to be silent about this.

"It should not happen to nobody's son or daughter and the fact it's circulating online is absolutely disgusting.

"If anyone sees something like this circulating online, or even watches this kind of event in person, I really do urge people to go straight to the authorities."

The local community showed their support by dropping gifts like teddy bears to the family.

The girl's school has also been in touch and are prepared to be flexible with her classes while she recovers.

Detectives from Cairns Child Protection and Investigation Unit have charged the 13-year-old with one count of assault occasioning bodily harm.

The teen will appear in Cairns Children's Court at a later date.
