An official investigation is still ongoing after leaked video clips showing toddlers being mistreated at a Shanghai day care center sparked outrage in China last week.

One clip on the Chinese social media site Sina Weibo shows a woman forcefully wrenching a schoolbag from a small girl’s back and hurling it to the floor before pushing the child toward a table. The child falls and hits her head on the edge of the table.
