A viral video has circulated social media showing a healthcare worker boxing his elderly patients.
The original video, and a few adjunct bits of footage containing the same man pummeling his vulnerable patients, elicited abundant anger as social media users voiced their disgust at the cowardly act.
In the first video, the prone elderly man attempts to defend himself as the stronger, younger caretaker lays into him with blows to the head.
The man throws multiple punches at the cowering elderly man until he draws blood. He then grabs a bed sheet to wipe the blood, while muttering unintelligibly to the battered elderly man.
The clips were posted to Twitter, with an alleged identification of the man in question being made.
