Meanwhile, the other woman comes to her aid. But things don’t cool down, they continue to get worse.
The hitting continues, and at one point, the man even kicks the wife’s head. All while she is still carrying her baby.
And all this, apparently because she moved the TV to another room.
In spite of the video going viral, the husband hasn’t been arrested. According to news reports, the victim, who is a well-known newsreader, later received treatment in the hospital.
