Singapore — The police were called to investigate after the parents of a month-old baby found their confinement nanny abusing the child.

The baby’s father,  Mr Reuben See, 33, called the police after reviewing footage from closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed in his home,  reported The Straits Times.

A reader sent the clips anonymously to The Independent Singapore and we reached out to Mrs See for more information, but the family has not responded.

On Jan 17, Mrs See saw CCTV footage of the 63-year-old Malaysian confinement nanny slapping the baby vigorously on the back. When she told her husband, the couple decided to observe the nanny before they made a decision.

The nanny, Yang, a Malaysian, had been referred to the couple by a friend.

When Mr See reviewed the CCTV footage, he found Yang mistreating and abusing his baby girl, and the couple subsequently called the police to their flat in Hougang.

In the footage, the nanny was seen being very rough with their daughter. The camera also caught the nanny falling asleep while feeding the child, reported AsiaOne.

The video footage showed the nanny dozing off while putting the baby to sleep and the baby is seen slipping out of the carer’s arms and landing on a mattress. Other clips also showed the nanny using a cloth to clean the child’s face and being quite rough. She is also seen pushing the baby’s head forwards while burping her.

Another clip shows Mrs See asleep as the nanny jerks the baby up from the bed.

Yang is now assisting with police investigations into alleged child abuse  and her  passport has been impounded, reported Shin Min Daily News. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
