SALEM, NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — A New Jersey woman was repeatedly beaten by another woman as her toddler son watched in horror, our sister-station PIX 11 reported.

On Tuesday June 25th, bystanders sat back, watched and even recorded the attack instead of jumping in to stop it.

A video of the beating was posted on Facebook before it was reported and taken down.

The graphic video shows the 2-year-old boy trying to protect his mother from being kicked while the attacker threatens to shoot her.

The fight started after the woman accused the victim of spreading rumors about her and her manager at McDonald’s.

The victim was left with limited vision in her left eye, a broken nose and many cuts and bruises.

    This is how truly sick this world is. EVERY ONE OF THOSE BYSTANDERS SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH FAILURE TO HELP THEIR FELLOW MAN! I pray to GOD none of them call themselves HUMAN! I’m so sorry for the woman and her precious son that they had this devastating incident happen to them. May God bless you.

      If this was a white girl pummeling a black girl this would be called racist. But no mention of it in the reverse. I hope they catch this vagrant and she loses her job and gets some jail time especialy for her comments about she is going to smack the two year old in the head. Gor those who stood by and watched don’t worry karma will find you, you cowards!

    So typical of “yard ape” culture to just stand around. I’m sure they all scattered once the cops arrived and “didn’t see nothing”.
