Horrifying images show a martial arts expert beating up his newscaster wife while holding their baby at home in Vietnam.
Local reports say that Nguyen Xuan Vinh, 32, was angry with his wife for moving a television from one room to another in their home in Hanoi on Monday night.
The victim, Vu Thi Thu Ly, 27, a renowned radio presenter, uploaded the images of her subjected to the ongoing attack.
It shows that Ly grabs her two-month-old son while the child's father uses his brutal skills as a Wushu instructor against her.
Nguyen Xuan Vinh, 32, is standing above his wife and child after they both knocked them to the ground on Monday evening at their home in Hanoi, Vietnam
The video has caused indignation in Vietnam, where Ly is a well-known radio presenter for the national broadcaster Voice of Vietnam
Another child who is seen in the video and who is believed to be the other son of the couple is ordered by a father in an adjoining room, who then continues the abuse.
At some point the well-known newsreader walks away while she is being chased by her husband who keeps beating her.
The video was recorded by CCTV cameras & # 39; s in the family home in the Long Bien district of Hanoi.
It is not clear whether the cameras are installed because the man has a history of violence against his wife.
At another point in the video, the shirtless villain turns around and throws a kick in the direction of his wife's face.
He finally hits her so hard that she falls to the ground.
The journalist had to be treated in the hospital after the attack.
Her husband was not arrested despite the fact that the video was widely distributed in Vietnam.
It is believed that the couple were divorced after previous incidents of domestic violence and were reunited before the birth of their second child.

Mrs. Ly published the images and talked to local media for years about her husband's suffering
& # 39; He hit me hard, at that moment I was holding my little child, forced to hold my baby, but in the end he hit me, I couldn't stand anymore and finally both my mother and my children fell, she cried everywhere. & # 39; The frightened woman said.
& # 39; His nature is a mean hooligan, I endured. & # 39; She went on. & # 39; Other times I beat, but not at this poor level, so I ignore the contempt and influence the children. But beating me for children is unacceptable. & # 39;
Campaigners against domestic violence say they see more and more cases in Vietnam – but there are still plenty of cases where the victims are too scared to come forward.
UN women's specialist Nguyen Thi Thuy told Vietnam News: & # 39; Previously, everyone, especially the victim, didn't want to say anything about this.
& # 39; But now, the higher the awareness of women and in society, there are more reported incidents of violence against women in the mass media.

& # 39; Research over the past ten years has shown that one in three married women has fallen victim to domestic violence, and many prefer to keep it to themselves than to report it.
& # 39; When the children live in a family where the father always physically and mentally abuses the mother, growing up in such a toxic environment, the minds and growth of these children will also be affected, distorted and threaten to accept violence that returns to their lives in the future as adults.
& # 39; We must take action, have better education, women must stand up for themselves, and everyone must recognize women more sympathetically, there is no prejudice against them.
& # 39; Only then will they escape the marriages that look like a prison sentence. & # 39;
