The Sun has released terrifying footage of the moments a man beats his wife and then locks her in the back of a boot.
Although not yet verified, the video shows the Chinese man initially slapping his wife and trying to force her body down into the boot at a petrol station.
As she tries to fight back, you can hear people in the background shouting, although no one appears to act.
More and more people begin to gather around as the woman tries to fight back, with the man persistently slamming the woman’s head into the boot.
After 50 seconds, the man viciously slaps the woman and he crushes the boot down on top of her.
From there, he seemingly walks off for a few seconds, then climbs in his car.
When the footage ends, the woman is still being held in the back of the car.
Despite the crowd gathering around the watch the brutal incident, no one intervenes at all. Another woman tries to speak to the man but at no point in the video do people try to restrain him or save the woman locked in the car.
