The video, which has been circulating on the Internet since yesterday, caused shock and shows how a father tries to strangle his child in the middle of the road near Omonia Square.
Her partner broke into the apartment, began to knock on the door of the room in which she was staying, and when the wife opened the door, entered, grabbed the child and tried to hide. The mother followed him, as a result of which an incident unfolded on the streets of the center of Athens, when the father of the child tried to strangle him.
After this incident, which ended with citizen intervention, the woman contacted the domestic violence department in Omonia and filed a lawsuit against her husband. He was detained, but in the evening the man was released. A criminal case has been initiated against him.
It is noteworthy that the baby’s father said: “I thought he was drowning, and went to save him.” (I take it the child was drowning on the sidewalk? editor’s note.)
The reports also say the child will be examined by a medical examiner to find out exactly what happened.
