A mum is facing child abuse charges after a video showing her allegedly driving off and abandoning her five-year-old daughter in a street emerged.
A witness filmed the heartbreaking moment the little girl pleads with her mother not to leave her alone.
In the images, the child can be heard screaming at the red car belonging to her mum.
The woman in the car appears to responds to the little girl, but it isn’t possible to hear exactly what is being said.
But as the car pulls off the girl’s howls become louder and more piercing and she is seen running in the road beside the vehicle.
Clinging to the vehicle as it turns the corner the child, dressed in a white top and dark shorts, tugs at the front passenger door which appears to be locked and desperately bangs on the window while repeatedly pleading to be let in.
The disturbing footage was filmed in a residential on January 31 in Curitiba, south Brazil.
