In the video, one can hear loud music playing in the background and the woman takes a drag of the hubbly bubbly then passes it to the small child. After the child drags the pipe, she passes what looks like an alcoholic beverage to the toddler.
It is unclear if the woman in the video is the mother of the small child. Watch the video:
Twitter users expressed outraged at the incident and have asked ChildLine South Africa and the South African Police Service (Saps) to step in.
